Falcons in good shape as they prepare for Lions
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

The Falcons are fairly healthy heading into their Sunday game against Detroit. Only defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (foot) appears destined to sit despite his status as questionable. Also questionable is wide receiver Harry Douglas (foot).

The probables are left guard Justin Blalock (back), wide receiver Julio Jones (ankle) and linebacker Prince Shembo (knee). All three were limited in practice Friday.

Report: Falcons WR Harry Douglas a game-time decision
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

A second straight day of practice for Falcons wideout Harry Douglas has him considered a game-time decision for Sunday against Detroit, per the team website. He has missed four consecutive games with a foot injury.

His inclusion Friday was a good sign in that it proved his foot responded well to the Thursday session. But Mike Smith emphasized that no decision has been made in regard to his status for Sunday.

"Harry's done very well," Smith said. "He will be a decision that we make as we get closer to the game, but he's been able to come out and participate in practice the past two days ... I like the progress he's made through the week."

Douglas has 12 catches for 121 yards and one touchdown in three games played this season.

Might be time to sit Matt Ryan
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

After he lost his fourth starting offensive lineman for the season in what his third straight game with just one touchdown pass, I suggested Fantasy owners might consider sitting Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan for Week 8 against the Lions in London. Turns out Jamey Eisenberg and Dave Richard are completely on board with that, ranking him only 20th among quarterbacks.

Granted, the Saints' Drew Brees managed to find a way against them last week, but it doesn't change the fact that the Lions have allowed the fewest Fantasy points per game to quarterbacks by far. And most of the ones they've faced still had their offensive lines intact.

Part of Ryan's problem is that he just doesn't have time to throw the ball downfield, and that's not going to improve with his starting center now gone. The Lions, as you might expect from their ranking, have a terrific pass rush. They're tied for third with 21 sacks. They're also one of three teams that have recorded more interceptions than they've allowed touchdown passes.

Even if everything was hunky-dory for Ryan and he was coming off a stretch where he looked like Peyton Manning, he'd be a candidate to sit with such a tough matchup. As things currently stand for him and the Falcons, it's a no-brainer move.
