Falcons center Drew Dalman misses Wednesday’s practice

The Atlanta Falcons have begun preparation for their season finale against the New Orleans Saints and a few key players are still banged up. Center Drew Dalman is out Wednesday, while defensive backs DeMarcco Hellams and Mike Hughes are in the concussion protocol.

On the bright side, Falcons quarterback Taylor Heinicke hopes to play this weekend. Heinicke was limited on Wednesday due to an ankle injury, per ESPN’s Michael Rothstein.
