Atlanta Falcons News

Austin Hooper, May be out through bye

Hooper (appendix) may be held out until after Cleveland's bye week in Week 9, Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports.

Analysis: Hooper underwent an appendectomy Friday and will miss Sunday's game against the Bengals. The tight end will likely miss next week's contest against the Raiders before the Browns' bye week Nov. 8. That will give Hooper three full weeks to recuperate.

Julio Jones, Suiting up Week 7

Jones (hamstring) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Detroit, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Jones returned to the lineup last week and scorched the Minnesota defense for 137 yards and two touchdowns. He may continue to be limited in practice, but he should handle his full workload Sunday.

Calvin Ridley, Cleared for Week 7

Ridley (elbow) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against Detroit, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Ridley never appeared to be in serious danger of missing the game, logging limited practices Wednesday and Thursday. He should be fine to handle his usual workload, averaging 9.5 targets and 91 receiving yards per game this year. The Lions have allowed the seventh-most fantasy points to wide receivers, including 186.2 yards and 1.2 TDs per game.

Austin Hooper, Ruled out for Week 7

Hooper is slated to undergo appendix surgery Friday and won't play Sunday against the Bengals, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: With Hooper set to miss at least one game, the Browns will turn to Harrison Bryant and David Njoku to handle the team's pass-catching duties at tight end Sunday against Cincinnati and possibly in Week 8 against the Raiders.

Austin Hooper, Not spotted at practice Friday

Hooper (undisclosed) was not spotted during the media-access portion of Friday's practice, Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal reports.

Analysis: It remains to be seen if the Week 7 status of Hooper, who has logged 22 catches for 205 yards and a TD in six games to date, is in any danger, but if he's limited or out Sunday against the Bengals, Harrison Bryant, David Njoku and Stephen Carlson would be next up for the team's tight end looks.
