Ali (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's matchup against the Packers, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.
Ali, an undrafted rookie out of Kentucky, is a healthy scratch for a second straight game to open the season. The Falcons have just four wideouts available Sunday -- Drake London, Mack Hollins, Scotty Miller and KhaDarel Hodge.

Ali (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Panthers, D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.
Ali, along with tight end John FitzPatrick (coach's decision) and running back Cordarrelle Patterson (thigh) are the skill players ruled out for Sunday's season opener. Atlanta will roll out a wide receiver corps of Drake London, Mack Hollins, Scotty Miller and KhaDarel Hodge.
The Falcons signed Ali to a reserve/future contract Monday.
Ali was elevated ahead of Sunday's regular-season finale against the Buccaneers and played seven offensive snaps with zero catches on one target. The 6-foot wideout then reverted to the team's practice squad before inking this new deal with the team heading into the offseason, per the NFL's transaction log. Ali ended his season-long stint on the Falcons' practice squad with back-to-back elevations over the final two weeks of the regular season, and he'll now compete for a spot on the active roster this offseason.
The Falcons elevated Ali from the practice squad heading into Sunday's regular-season finale against Tampa Bay.
Ali will be active for the second week in a row to end the 2022 regular season. The 6-foot wideout did not see any playing time after he was also elevated for the Week 17 win against Arizona, so it's unlikely he'll receive any significant opportunities unless Atlanta benches some of its starters during this Week 18 contest that doesn't have any playoff implications.
Ali reverted to the Falcons' practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.
Ali was elevated to the active roster for the first time this season ahead of Sunday's win over the Cardinals. However, the undrafted rookie never wound up seeing the field despite being active for the contest. Ali will now have a chance to make his NFL debut if he is once again elevated for the regular-season finale versus Carolina this coming Sunday.
Ali was elevated from Atlanta's practice squad Saturday.
Ali has yet to make an appearance with the Falcons this season, and he'll likely serve as depth or as a special teams gunner with the majority of the pass catchers all healthy.
