Left tackle Sam Baker and linebacker Akeem Dent have been ruled out for Monday night’s game against the New York Jets at the Georgia Dome.
Baker and Dent both left last Sunday’s loss to the Patriots and did not return to the game. Baker is listed as having a knee injury and Dent has an ankle injury.
Running back Steven Jackson did not participate in Thursday’s practice, but head coach Mike Smith said he would not rule Jackson out for Monday’s game at this time.
LB Paul Worrilow (knee) and CB Asante Samuel (thigh) also did not practice Thursday.
WRs Roddy White and Julio Jones were limited Thursday, which is a positive sign since White, in particular, has missed the first day of practice each week since the regular season started.
