5 quick takes from Falcons' Sunday practice


http://players.brightcove.net/1345087319/4cfdbb28-dc61-4254-8fdb-6cfde224664b_default/index.html?videoId=5092992395001

FLOWERY BRANCH -- Here are five quick takes from Sunday's practice.

1. Bosher back at work. Falcons punter Matt Bosher, who was knocked out of the Cleveland game with a chest injury, was back at practice. Also, cornerback C.J. Goodwin (hamstring) returned to  practice. He was held out of the Cleveland game. The Falcons have requested that the league review the hit on Bosher by Cleveland linebacker Tank Carder to determine if he was a defense-less player. No penalty was called on the play.

2. Starr working with first team defense. Falcons linebacker Tyler Starr worked some with the first-team defense at strongside linebacker.

3. Beasley at practice.  Falcons defensive end Vic Beasley was back at practice. He didn't play in the Cleveland game because of a shoulder injury.

4. Ward, Ishmael with trainers. Running back Terron Ward (ankle) and safety Kemal Ishmael worked off to the side with the training staff.

5. Practice highlights. Wide receiver Eric Weems caught a short route and eluded safety Damian Parms with a nice open field move that draws "ohhs" and "ahhs" from the players. Linebacker LaRoy Reynolds missed some time while having his right foot attended to by the training staff.
