EDGE Analysis

Bryant's 50-yarder proved to be the game-winning kick, as it put Atlanta ahead with just under four minutes remaining. The 42-year-old has registered at least eight points in five straight games heading into Sunday's trip to Tampa Bay.

Bryant connected on three field goals in Sunday's 14-9 loss to the Vikings.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant connected from 36, 38 and 47 yards, but he missed a late attempt from 45 yards that could have made it a 14-12 game. Bryant is now 24-for-28 on the season. He has a good kicking match up in Week 14 at home against the Saints.

Bryant (back) doesn't have a designation on the final injury report for Sunday's game against the Vikings, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant has made a number of appearances on the injury report this season but has yet to miss a game. While his volume hasn't approached last season's level, he's been as reliable as ever with the chances he's had, converting 21 of 24 field-goal attempts and each of his 28 PATs.

Bryant (back) didn't practice Wednesday, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant has made an unusual number of injury report appearances for a kicker, but he's yet to actually miss a game and has been just as accurate as ever. The only cause for concern is the fact that he dealt with a back injury earlier this season, but there hasn't been any suggestion that his recent flare-up is serious.

Bryant converted both of his field-goal attempts and all three of his extra-point tries en route to nine points in Sunday's 27-7 win over the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant missed a couple days of practice due to a calf problem, but that didn't prevent him from suiting up and performing well. In fact, the 42-year-old drilled a 50-yard field goal Sunday. Through nine games, Bryant sports 71 points.

Bryant (calf) doesn't have an injury designation for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, David Helman of the Cowboys' official site reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant missed practice Wednesday and Thursday but returned as a limited participant Friday. He'll be out there for Sunday's game, though it's possible the Falcons are hesitant to attempt field goals toward the edge of his usual range.

Bryant (calf) didn't participate in Thursday's practice.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant's right calf injury has kept him out of both of the Falcons' practices to open the week, but as the only kicker on the roster at this time, the team will wait and see what the veteran is able to do Friday before deciding his fate for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. As a safeguard against a potential Bryant absence, the Falcons signed Mike Meyer to their practice squad earlier this week. If Meyer remains on the practice squad after the weekly deadline Saturday for teams to add players to their 53-man rosters, it would likely mean that Bryant is in the clear to handle kicking duties in Week 10.

Bryant (leg) won't practice Wednesday, William McFadden of the Falcons' official website reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant was able to handle extra points (and an early 53-yard field goal) in Sunday's 20-17 loss to Carolina, but the Falcons passed up potential kicks from 52 and 56 yards later in the game, instead going for it on fourth down (and failing) both times. The team added kicker Mike Meyer to its practice squad Wednesday, hinting at some degree of concern regarding Bryant's availability for Sunday's game against the Cowboys. Given that his range may be limited, Bryant will be a sub-optimal option for Week 10, if he even ends up playing.

Bryant sustained a leg injury in pregame warmups Sunday at Carolina, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Bryant nailed a 53-yard field goal to cap the opening drive of the game, but his two remaining reps otherwise happened during extra points. Head coach Dan Quinn pointed to an injury as the reason for no long field goals after the early look. As evidence, the Falcons went for it on fourth down from the Panthers' 35 and 39, succeeding on neither of the attempts. Due to Bryant's age (42), he may spend most, if not all, of his time with the training staff this week to ensure he's ready for Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys.
