Originally written on NFL Injury Report  |  Last updated 11/18/14
The Atlanta Falcons approach this weekend’s matchup against the Carolina Panthers with a banged up secondary, as safety William Moore and cornerback Asante Samuel each missed practice again Thursday, while running back Michael Turner practiced at a limited capacity for the second day in a row. Samuel missed practice for the second day in a row due to a shoulder injury. The cornerback exited last week’s game against the New Orleans Saints in the first quarter. Considering the Falcons lead for the top seed in the NFC, the team would appear to have little incentive to rush Samuel back from injury. Moore accounted for two of the five interceptions thrown by Saints quarterback Drew Brees last week, but he is now hampered by a hamstring injury. Like Samuel, the Falcons are unlikely to rush Moore back, especially against the 3-9 Panthers. Beyond Turner (elbow), defensive lineman Peria Jerry (quadricep) was also limited at practice Thursday.
