FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons returned to practice Wednesday tied for the lead in the NFC South and all banged-up for the final month of the regular season.Coming off a disheartening loss to Kansas City, the Falcons (7-5) hit the field without top receiver Julio Jones and two other starters who were injured against the Chiefs.Jones is bothered by turf toe, left tackle Jake Matthews has a knee problem, and receiver Mohamed Sanu is slowed by a sore groin.On top of that, defensive end Adrian Clayborn is definitely out for Sundays game against the Los Angeles Rams and will likely miss several more weeks with a knee injury -- if he returns at all this season. The Falcons already lost their best defender, cornerback Desmond Trufant, to a season-ending pectoral injury.Thats the important part of having depth, coach Dan Quinn said. If youre called upon, youre here for a reason.Quinn said hes hopeful Jones, who has battled nagging injuries all season, will be able to practice Thursday and play against the Rams. Since a broken foot cost him most of the 2013 season, the receiver has missed only one game.Hes somebody that does a good job taking care of his body, Quinn said. He has a real ability to push it to get back. I know if hes able to, he certainly will.Even though turf toe is a painful condition that can lead to major issues, the coach stressed he doesnt think Jones case is that serious.This is something hes going to respond to quickly, the coach said. Its not a long-term thing hes going to be dealing with.As for Matthews and Sanu, Quinn said he would monitor their condition through the rest of the week and hopes they will be able to play against the Rams (4-8).Matthews went out in the first half of last weeks game. The trainers put a sleeve over his left knee, and he went through some running and cutting drills on the sideline to test it out.But Matthews headed to the locker room before halftime and didnt return. Tom Compton, a fourth-year player, got his first significant action of the season protecting quarterback Matt Ryans blind side.Compton turned in a solid performance, but the Falcons cant afford to lose Matthews for an extended period. The No. 6 overall pick in 2014, he had stepped up his play significantly this season.Jakes really playing at a high level, Quinn said. You can see it his pass protection. You can see it in the run game. His play took a significant jump from 2015 to 2016.Clayborn underwent surgery to repair a torn medial collateral ligament shortly after being hurt in a Nov. 27 game against Arizona. Quinn hasnt ruled out a return this season, but the Falcons moved to bolster their depth on the defensive line by bringing back Malliciah Goodman.A fourth-round pick in 2013, Goodman appeared in 34 games, including 11 starts, before he was cut in September near the end of training camp. He played one game this season at Seattle.The Falcons also promoted offensive lineman Kevin Graf from the practice squad in case Matthews isnt able to play Sunday. To make room on the roster for two new players, Atlanta waived defensive lineman Cliff Matthews and center Trevor Robinson.While there were no immediate moves to address the injuries to Jones and Sanu, Quinn noted hes got two receivers on the practice squad, Nick Williams and J.D. McKissic. Thats where Atlanta would turn if necessary.The Falcons have led the NFC South much of the season, but now theyve got company in the top spot. Tampa Bay (7-5) has won four straight to pull into a tie with Atlanta, which has lost two of its last three games.A year ago, the Falcons collapsed down the stretch after starting 6-1. They finished 8-8 and missed the playoffs for the third year in a row.---Follow Paul Newberry on Twitter at www.twitter.com/pnewberry1963 .

The Chelsea manager, who has enjoyed fine form of late with the Blues, has his side sitting second in the Premier League table having finished 10th last season.After arriving in the summer, Conte says he did not realise how tough the Premier League was, and insists the spread of quality makes it unique. Mboro vs Chelsea November 20, 2016, 3:30pm Live on Get Sky Sports Get a Sky Sports pass Conte told Sky Sports: This league is very tough. When you play in this league you understand that. It has good players, great talent and a good intensity, good passes.It is also very difficult to manage here. Yes, you may be winning 1-0, 2-0, but the game is open until the end, and it is important to concentrate until the end. Highlights: Chelsea 5-0 Everton You try to prepare to face the Premier League, but when you play in this league, you understand how tough it is. In every team there are a lot of good players, this is the main difference with other countries.Chelsea saw off Everton 5-0 before the international break, and face Middlesbrough at the Riverside on Sunday, live on Sky Sports 1 HD.Contes moved to a back three after the 3-0 defeat by Arsenal in late September, and Chelsea have scored 16 goals without conceding since, but the Italian says his success of late is down to more than just tactics. Watch the Sunday Premier League preview as Chelsea head to the Riverside Stadium to take on Middlesbrough This formation, 3-4-3, was a good option.dddddddddddd We started with a 4-2-4. This formation, 3-4-3, was in our plan during the pre-season, and it was a good option. In the squad I saw we had a lot of players who could adapt to this system.I think it is important for the coach to find the right fit for the team. In this case, I think this formation is very adaptable for the squad.

Contes Chelsea are in fine form of late Its not true. Without the ball, it is important for Eden to help the team and win it quickly, and he is helping the team a lot. He is improving a lot for me without the ball. I am very pleased for this.Eden, you can see, is playing fantastic football. I think in this formation we can exploit his characteristics in the best way.But now, he must continue in this way, it is important for him and for Chelsea.Upgrade to Sky Sports now to watch Man Utd v Arsenal this Saturday and get the first six months half price!
