Though not considered serious, a few more starters - Marion Barber (fractured thumb), DeMarcus Ware (stress fracture in foot), and Leonard Davis (fractured thumb) - will add new injuries to the team report.
Phillips said Ware had been experiencing foot pain for the last couple of weeks, and an MRI revealed the fracture.
"It's not a major injury," Phillips said. "It's something he can play with."
Barber thought he jammed his thumb against Kansas City two weeks ago, but an X-ray showed a fracture. Right guard Leonard Davis has the same injury, and both players will wear casts.
Also wearing casts will be strong safeties, Gerald Sensabaugh (thumb) and Mike Hamlin (arm). Sensabaugh is pushing to start against Atlanta, while it is not yet known whether or not Hamlin will be activated.
Roy Williams (ribs) , Andre Gurode (knee), and Flozell Adams (shoulder) are all still on the injured list, but have practiced this week and are expected to play Sunday.
"It's still there (pain in knee) a little bit, but if feels a lot better,'' Jones said after Wednesday's practice. "One day at a time is all I can do.''
