Last week linebacker Mike Peterson got the start in stead of Stephen Nicholas, who was out with a calf strain. Peterson was spelled on passing downs by Spencer Adkins. It’s likely the Falcons will employ the same rotation this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks since Nicholas was declared out for the second straight week.
Also listed as out on the Falcons injury report, released Friday afternoon, were defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee), running back Jason Snelling (concussion), and defensive end Cliff Matthews (knee). For the third straight game, Peria Jerry will start in place of the injured Babineaux. Snelling suffered his injury last week vs. Tampa Bay and will mean more opportunities for Jacquizz Rodgers as Michael Turner’s primary backup.
Wide receiver Roddy White (thigh) was listed as questionable after being able to go on a limited basis in Friday’s practice after sitting out both Wednesday and Thursday. White has never missed a game entering his seventh season in t...

Seattle Times pick: Falcons 28, Seahawks 20.I tried to talk myself into a Seahawks' victory. I really did. The Falcons aren't the most complicated offense in the league. They want to hand the ball to their butter-bear of an Eating Back and let Michael Turner devour yards. But that's going right into the teeth of Seattle...
Matt Ryan did plenty with his arm and his legs. Atlanta's star was still stuck having to watch a 61-yard field-goal attempt fall short in the waning seconds to avoid a huge Falcons meltdown.
SEATTLE (AP) — Atlanta wide receiver Roddy White is active for the Falcons' game at Seattle, while the Seahawks will be without starting strong safety Kam Chancellor.
Even with White going the Falcons will be down two starters Sunday previously ruled as out: defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee) and linebacker Stephen Nicholas (calf).
Matt Ryan threw for 291 yards, and rookie Julio Jones caught 11 passes for 127 yards as the Atlanta Falcons held off a second-half rally for a 30-28 victory over the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday.

Trailing by two with less than two minutes to go in the game, Seattle began its the final drive from the 15-yard line, moving the ball up to the Atlanta 45 and looked to be in good shape to steal the game, with...
