Falcons update

Uncertainty in kicking situation

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — K Matt Bryant, who injured a hamstring Sunday against the Bills, went home to Texas after the game because of the death of his father.

The kicking situation is uncertain, but the Falcons expect P Michael Koenen (concussion) to be cleared to play.

The father of ex-Buc Bryant, Casey Bryant, 78, died Friday in Bridge City, Texas, from complications from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, known as Lou Gehrig's disease. His funeral is today.

The Falcons hope RB Michael Turner (ankle sprain), who did not play Sunday, can return to workouts Wednesday.
