Falcons' Hayden Hurst (ankle) held out on Thursday

Atlanta Falcons tight end Hayden Hurst did not practice on Thursday.

What It Means:

Hurst got in a limited session on Wednesday, so this is a scary trend for the 27-year-old. Then again, Julio Jones and Todd Gurley both had the same schedule - limited Wednesday, off on Thursday - so perhaps it's a way of the Falcons safely managing their workloads. In any case, it's something to keep a close eye on during Friday's final injury report. If he can't go or is limited in any way, Luke Stocker and/or Jaeden Graham would be in line for a larger workload.

Our models currently project Hurst for 3.7 catches, 40.4 receiving yards, 0.3 touchdowns and 7.5 FanDuel points.
