FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- Atlanta Falcons cornerback Juran Bolden, arrested over the weekend for marijuana possession and driving a stolen car, will practice Wednesday if he's injured knee has healed enough.

Bolden is on the physically unable to perform list. He had reconstructive knee surgery after being injured in Atlanta's 20-6 playoff loss at Philadelphia in January.

"I don't know all the details other than what I've read and I haven't talked to Juran personally on the situation," Falcons coach Dan Reeves of Bolden's arrest. "We just have to let the legal thing take its course."

Bolden, a five-year NFL player, returned to the league last year after spending two seasons in the Canadian Football League. He finished with 41 tackles and tied for the team lead with four interceptions in 2002.

Atlanta (1-5) has dropped five in a row, and the defense gave up 596 yards in a 36-0 loss to the St. Louis Rams on Monday night.
