Just like the Colts, the Falcons have some players who stayed behind to rehab injuries. The group includes tight end Eric Beverly (shoulder), defensive ends Brady Smith (neck) and Erik Flowers (back), defensive tackle Brandon Mitchell (back), linebacker Antoine Cash (groin), fullback Kevin Dudley (hamstring) and running back Derrick Tinsley (knee). Free safety Bryan Scott (shoulder) is making the trip, but isn't expected to play.
Falcons RB T.J. Duckett missed some practice due to a hamstring problem and could be questionable for game action.
A few other players, including tight end Alge Crumpler (knee) and running back Warrick Dunn (abdomen) will likely start but won't be in the game for long.
Three linebackers will be playing and working through minor injuries. Ed Hartwell strained his wrist last week, Ike Reese twisted his knee and rookie Michael Boley has a strained rotator cuff.
PLAYERS TO WATCH
End Khaleed Vaughn is reportedly having a very good camp so far for Atlanta. That's key for the Falcons as the second-year player is trying to fill some big shoes due to Brady Smith's neck injury. He's expected to be out 5-6 weeks.
The Falcons' first-round draft pick, WR Roddy White signed in time to accompany the team to Tokyo for this Saturday's matchup with the Colts. At his second practice with the team, he impressed QB Michael Vick by catching practically everything thrown
"Roddy's going to be good, man," he said. "Watching him today, I saw a lot of things he does well. Getting off the ball, running great routes, great hands, so he's got me excited."
White snagged a short touchdown pass that Vick threw to the front left pylon making a nice diving catch. He also beat the Falcons' best cornerback, DeAngelo Hall, when he sprinted 15 yards and used two quick fake moves before cutting inside of Hall to catch Vick's pass for an 18-yard gain.
"I'd be lying if I said I wasn't impressed with him," head coach Jim Mora said.
