Defensive tackle Corey Peters [stress fractured foot] is close to returning but remains on the reserve/non-football injury list.

“He’s been working with our athletic performance group on the side,” Smith said. “There will be a decision-making process in the term [physically unable to perform] from Week 6 through Week 9, where you can come off the list. That’s coming up very quickly.”
Peria Jerry opened the season in Peters’ place and played well at first. But the Falcons have turned more to Vance Walker in recent weeks.
