Sanu (shoulder) was a non-participant at Wednesday's practice, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu continues to tend to the shoulder injury that forced him out of Monday's victory in New Orleans. While the training room, rather than the practice field, could be his domain this week, there is an expectation that he'll suit up Sunday against the Panthers, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com.

The Falcons expect Sanu, who left Monday's game with a shoulder injury, to play Sunday against the Panthers, ESPN's Ed Werder reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu's setback was serious enough to prevent him from returning to action Monday night, but the team is hopeful that it will not cost him any further action. Sanu's status for Week 4 will likely be determined based on his participation in practice this week.

Sanu (shoulder) was unable to return to Monday's game against the Saints after exiting in the second quarter, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu left for the locker room late in the second quarter, finishing with three catches for 31 yards on four targets in what eventually turned into an easy Atlanta victory. He wanted to re-enter the game later on, but his shoulder injury ultimately proved to be too serious. If he misses time beyond Monday, the Falcons will turn to some combination of Justin Hardy, Aldrick Robinson and Taylor Gabriel to handle expanded roles behind Julio Jones.

Sanu was removed from Monday's game against New Orleans in the second quarter with a shoulder injury, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu, the Falcons' No. 2 wide receiver, caught three passes for 31 yards on four targets prior to his early exit. His return is questionable, but he didn't appear to be back in the game on Atlanta's first drive of the second half. If Sanu doesn't return, the Falcons will look to Justin Hardy, Aldrick Robinson and Taylor Gabriel to handle expanded roles.

Sanu (ankle) will play in the Falcons' Monday night game against the Saints.

EDGE Analysis

While Sanu did not practice on Thursday, he was able to increase his participation in a limited capacity on Friday before practicing in full on Saturday. Consequently, the Atlanta coaching staff gave him the green light to play in the team's divisional showdown against New Orleans, where the loser of which will likely enter Week 4 as the last-placed team in the NFC South.

Sanu (ankle) was listed as a limited participant at Friday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

An earlier report suggested Sanu was a full participant, but it turns out he missed at least a small part of the practice. In any case, his availability for Monday against the Saints doesn't seem to be in much question, and the Falcons are also confident Julio Jones (calf) will be able to play.

Sanu (ankle) returned to practice Friday as a full participant, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports.

EDGE Analysis

While Julio Jones (calf) missed another practice, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn maintains the superstar wideout should be fine for Monday, likely giving Matt Ryan his full complement of weapons. Sanu and his teammates draw a fantastic matchup against the porous New Orleans secondary.

Sanu (ankle) didn't practice Thursday, Kelsey Conway of the Falcons' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Sanu followed a limited/limited/full practice routine last week, so a DNP to kick off Week 3 prep is a bit disconcerting. With two practices remaining, though, he has time to prove his health in advance of Monday's contest at New Orleans. After two games as a Falcon, Sanu has matched Julio Jones (calf) with 13 targets, with only tight end Jacob Tamme (16) scooping up more to date.

Sanu caught three balls for 19 yards in Sunday's win over the Raiders.

EDGE Analysis

The silver lining here is that Sanu saw the same amount of targets as superstar Julio Jones. He should continue to see plenty of looks in the pass-happy offense, but it appears that Matt Ryan has no qualms about spreading the ball around early in the season, so Sanu will have to produce when called upon.

Sanu (ankle) is active for Sunday's contest in Oakland.

EDGE Analysis

Kicking off the week with back-to-back limited practices, Sanu allayed any fear of inactive status in Week 2 with a full showing Friday. He'll look to replicate his Falcons debut in which he corralled a touchdown grab during a five-catch, 80-yard effort against the Buccaneers last Sunday.
