London and Hall will have to pass a fitness test on Saturday.
“If we don’t (play an injured player) there’s a reason for that,” Smith said. “If we think, ‘Hey, it’s a long season’ (and) we don’t think it’s worth it for the health of the player and the team, we won’t do it. I would never put anyone ‘one out there who might get hurt more or not be mentally ready or sharp.
After being out for three weeks, London’s stamina could be a problem to match his knee and leg strength.
“You try to do the same,” Smith said. “That’s the good thing with modern technology. There are things you can do, but nothing replaces (cardio). You do your best to do cardio whether it’s in the pool with the different types of treadmills they have. There’s no substitute for actual running.
If London is able to play, the Falcons may have to watch his snap count.
“If he can go there and we play him, you have plan A,” Smith said. “Feel good or plan B if he needs to be managed.”
Hall is a backup defensive back who has a tenacious quad.
