Howard (shoulder/groin), who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Falcons, is expected to play, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.
After sitting out the Week 6 loss to the Jaguars due to the pair of injuries, Howard managed limited participation in practices Wednesday through Friday. The cornerback has seemingly avoided any setbacks in the process, so he looks like he'll avoid the inactive list ahead of the 1 p.m. ET kickoff. Howard will likely spend most of the day shadowing top Atlanta wideout Calvin Ridley, who is returning from a one-game absence of his own.
