Matt Bryant injury update: Fantasy value hinges on probable status

Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE

Matt Bryant was limited in practice this week but should be able to kick on Sunday. He's a safe start in fantasy football.

Atlanta Falcons kicker Matt Bryant is officially listed as questionable for the team's game on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Bryant is dealing with a back injury. He was limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday but returned to full practice on Friday. He is expected to play on Sunday.

Fantasy Impact: Kicker injuries are always risky business. One wrong move could aggravate the injury, and kicking can be very difficult with even a minor injury.

Bryant has been rock solid for fantasy owners this season and has a nice matchup. Considering he got the probable tag, it seems like a safe bet to start him. Just hope he doesn't do something to tweak that back injury.
