  • Head coach Raheem Morris says Fowler's low sack total correlates to a lack of production from the pass-rush group as a whole, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports. The interim coach was unwilling to place the blame directly upon Fowler despite Atlanta's defense sitting at sixth worst in the NFL with 1.4 team sacks per game. Fowler was certainly expected to move the needle more than he has, as he's collected just one sack since inking a three-year, $45 million free-agent contract in March. If 2017 first-round pick Takkarist McKinley (groin) is traded at the deadline as has been conjectured about, Fowler may have an even greater burden upon his shoulders within Atlanta's thus far uninspired pass rush.

  • Fowler (ankle) isn't on the injury report ahead of Sunday's game against the Lions, William McFadden of the Falcons' official site reports. Fowler didn't practice Thursday, but he was able to get back out there Friday and should be good to go come game day. He'll look to get his season on track against Detroit, as Fowler has mustered just one sack through six games with the Falcons after racking up 11.5 for the Rams last season.

  • Fowler (ankle) was a non-participant during Thursday's practice, Tori McElhaney of The Athletic reports. Fowler practiced in limited fashion at Wednesday's session after he saw a season-high 80 percent of snaps on defense in last week's win over Minnesota. It's not a great sign that Fowler was downgraded, so if he were to miss Week 7 against the Lions, Steven Means would be in line for the start at defensive end.

  • Fowler (ankle) was a limited participant during practice Wednesday, Jason Butt of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Fowler ended up fielding a season-high 80 percent of the defensive snaps Sunday in a win over the Vikings, and that came after he put in a limited week of practice. The 2015 No. 3 overall draft choice was unable to generate a sack for the fourth consecutive game, though he does have four QB hits to his name since Week 3. If Fowler is able to suit up in Week 7, he will oppose a Detroit offensive line that ranks 21st in the NFL with 2.4 sacks surrendered per game.

  • Fowler (ankle) does not have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Vikings. Fowler, like a number of Falcons defenders, was limited throughout practice all week but looks to be a full-go versus Minnesota. The starting defensive end has gone three straight games without a sack, a streak he'll look to break against Kirk Cousins and the Vikings.
