Worrilow (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Chiefs.
Worrilow popped up on the Falcons' injury report after the illness prevented him from practicing Friday, but with a day off to recover, it's not expected that he'll face any limitations. The middle linebacker has a pair of 120-plus-tackle seasons on his resume, but after being displaced by Deion Jones for the starting role in 2016, Worrilow remains off the IDP radar.
Worrilow doesn't appear to be in danger of missing this week's action. He'll likely assume his usual role rotating in behind Deion Jones at middle linebacker.
Worrilow hasn't played since Week 2, when he needed to go under the knife to repair a groin injury. However, despite his active status, he's now buried on the depth chart and may struggle to earn playing time.
Worrilow (groin) will not play against the Seahawks on Sunday, ESPN reports.
Worrilow hasn't played in a game since Week 2, but managed to log limited practice sessions throughout the week. However, it's still uncertain when he'll return.
Initially, Worrilow wasn't expected to be able to return until Week 7, but a limited practice shows he may be a bit ahead of schedule. Still, barring a great week of practice, Worrilow likely will be held out for Week 6 and return to the field Week 7 as originally planned.
