Falcons WR Harry Douglas (foot) game-time decision vs. Lions

Friday October 24th, 2014

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas will be a game-time decision with a foot injury for Sunday’s game against the Detroit Lions at Wembley Stadium in London.

Douglas, who has missed the last four games with a deep bruise in his left foot, was limited in Friday’s final practice.

“Harry’s done very well,” coach Mike Smith told the team’s official website Friday. “He will be a decision that we make as we get closer to the game, but he’s been able to come out and participate in practice the past two days, so he was a limited participant again today, but I like the progress he’s made through the week.”

Douglas was injured during Atlanta’s 56-14 rout of Tampa Bay on Sept. 18 after recording 12 catches for 121 yards and a touchdown in the team’s first three games. He is coming off the best season of his career in 2013, when he had 85 receptions in 132 targets for 1,067 yards and two scores.

Atlanta is 2-5 this season and has lost four straight games, all without Douglas available. The Falcons' offense is No. 6 in yards this season, but the defense has struggled and is No. 30 in both points and yards allowed.

The Falcons play the Lions in London on Sunday at 9:30 a.m. ET.
