Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Harry Douglas was not seen during practice on Thursday during the portion made open to the media, according to Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com. It was later announced by the team that Douglas missed Thursday's practice due to a knee injury. Douglas was a full-participant on Wednesday.
Fantasy Spin: It's not a situation that would rest well with Douglas' owners, but it would be premature to panic. More information on Douglas' status for Sunday will be available later in the week, but at the worst case scenario, Drew Davis would likely start in Douglas' place with Tony Gonzalez, Roddy White and Jacquizz Rodgers shouldering the load in the receiving game.
Douglas has an iffy matchup ahead versus an underrated Tampa Bay Buccaneers secondary, but its one that has surrendered 17 passing touchdowns through the air this season. In their last meeting, Douglas tallied seven catches for 149 yards and a touchdown. In the meantime, pen Douglas in as a WR3 if he plays, which remains the plan until further notice. Owners would be wise to monitor Friday's injury report.
