The Atlanta Falcons will have both Asante Samuel and Dunta Robinson when they host the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night. Samuel had been "questionable" after missing all of this week's practices with a shoulder injury. Robinson popped up on Tuesday's injury report due to an illness, but practiced on a limited basis on Wednesday and had been "probable" for Thursday night's game.
The Saints received some good news on Thursday night as right tackle Zach Strief will return after missing the last three games with a groin injury. Strief's absence, combined with injuries Charles Brown and Bryce Harris, forced the team to insert newly-signed Will Robinson at right tackle during Sunday's 31-21 loss to the San Francisco 49ers.
