Peters, Southward on the injury report

Peters, who suffered his injury in the 15th game of last season against San Francisco, is coming back from offseason surgery.

Southward was recently released from the league concussion protocol.

For Peters, it was just his third-padded practice.

“I think Corey did some good things,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said after practice. “I want to get in there and really watch the tape….and get an opportunity to speak with Corey.”
