Bears RB Adrian Peterson could miss a game or two with a sprained MCL in his right knee. Linebackers Pisa Tinoisamoa (right knee) and Hunter Hillenmeyer (rib) are expected to be ready to go against the Falcons.
''I'm expecting all of the guys to play right now,'' Smith said. ''We haven't ruled anybody out. So I'm pretty excited about us having all of our guys ready to play next time we go.''
If Peterson misses only one game, the Bears could go with only two running backs in Matt Forte and Garrett Wolfe knowing that fullback Jason Mckie could fill in as an emergency option. Running back Kahlil Bell is on the practice squad.
