Asante Samuel questionable for Thursday’s game


Falcons cornerback Dunta Robinson (illness) returned to practice Wednesday, but his partner Asante Samuel is questionable for Thursday’s game with a shoulder injury.

Samuel hasn’t practiced this week, making him, by definition, a 50-50 call for tomorrow’s game with the Saints.

Falcons defensive tackle Peria Jerry is also questionable with a quadriceps injury.

Otherwise the Falcons appear well, with nine players listed as probable.
