SEATTLE — After posting a stunning 23-16 upset victory over the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos, the Falcons (4-1) are set to face the Seattle Seahawks (3-1) at 4:25 p.m. Sunday in Seattle.

Here are five things to know about the Falcons on Wednesday:

1. Practice. The Falcons return to practice at 4 p.m. at the University of Washington.

2. Injury report.   The Falcons are set to get linebackers De’Vondre Campbell, Deion Jones and Paul Worrilow back in some capacity when they return to practice on Wednesday.

3. Collins update. Second-round pick Jalen Collins was inactive after serving his four-game suspension for using performance enhancement drugs. Falcons coach Dan Quinn said it was a personnel decision.

4. Quinn vs Carroll I: Falcons coach Dan Quinn is going to try to deflect attention to the team, but there will be no running from the fact that he’s about to face one of his mentor’s in Pete Carroll.

5. Practice squad roster churn: The Falcons added linebacker David Tull, who played at Chattanooga, to the practice squad on Tuesday. Left-footed punter Michael Palardy was released to make room. Tull, who a three-time Southern Conference defensive player of the year, had a tryout with the Falcons on Sept. 20. Tull had 37 career sacks for the Mocs.
