Falcons' Corey Peters makes 2012 practice debut

AP Sports Writer

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - The Atlanta Falcons, the NFL's last unbeaten team, are rested and closer to full strength in their return from their bye week.

Defensive tackle Corey Peters, a starter the last two seasons, returned for limited activity Monday in his first practice this season. Peters, on the reserve injured list with a stress fracture in his left foot, will be eligible to make his season debut on Sunday at Philadelphia.

Outside linebacker Stephen Nicholas, who played only on special teams in a 23-20 win over Oakland on Oct. 14 due to an ankle injury, was back at full speed. Backup tight end Michael Palmer returned from a shoulder injury.

Coach Mike Smith normally has two practices in bye weeks. He gave players last week off.
