Ishmael (shoulder) will not practice Sunday, Vaugn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Original expectations had Ishmael returning to the practice field Sunday. However, it appears he's not completely over the injury and will take another day off for further rest and recovery. The injury isn't considered to be serious, so look for the 25-year-old safety to be back on the field later in the week.
Ishmael is questionable to return to Thursday's preseason opener against the Redskins, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
The Falcons are already thin at the strong safety position with starter Keanu Neal out. Rookie Damien Parms will see the majority of the work if Ishmael is unable to return.
Ishmael fell well short of his 2014 season, when he notched 98 tackles and grabbed four interceptions. He was used in a more rotational role this year, which hurt his final stat line. He has one year left on his contract, so he has plenty of reasons to make 2016 his best year yet.
