Nick Williams, Moore and Hankerson to miss practice today

FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons wide receiver Nick Williams (hamstring) will not practice with the team on Thursday, head coach Dan Quinn said.

Strong safety William Moore (groin) and wide receiver Leonard Hankerson (hamstring) will also not practice. Moore and Hankerson didn't practice on Wednesday, while Williams was limited.

Williams recorded a career high of 43 yards on three catches, including a long of 21 yards Sunday in the Falcons’ 10-7 victory over the Titans (1-5).

If Williams and Hankerson are not ready to play on Sunday, the Falcons will used Eric Weems and Justin Hardy as the backup wide receivers.

Hardy, a fourth-round pick out of East Carolina, has not been active for a game this season.
