The Falcons released their injury report this week, and Sam Baker was listed as questionable after limited participation in all three days of practice. Baker missed the past three games with a back injury. Two weeks ago he was reportedly expected to miss 3-4 weeks. He has been replaced by Will Svitek in the team’s past three outings.
Wide receiver Julio Jones was also listed as questionable, despite not practicing all week due to re-aggravating a hamstring injury in last week’s loss to the Saints. Jones suffered the original injury in a Week 5 loss against the Packers, missed two games, but then returned two weeks ago to have a big game against the Colts. If Jones is unable to go on Sunday, he will be replaced by Harry Douglas who is coming off a career high performance against New Orleans.
Expected to miss a second consecutive game is William Moore (quadricep), as he also did not practice this week. James Sanders will start in place of him at strong safety.

The chances of Falcons wide receiver Julio Jones playing against the Titans on Sunday are looking bleaker after Jones missed practice on Friday. He’s officially listed as questionable after reinjuring his hamstring in last week’s loss to the Saints, but it seems unwise to push him back onto the field so quickly if the team…
When Falcons receiver Julio Jones is healthy, he has helped justify the investment that the team made in trading up to get. Unfortunately, Jones haven’t been healthy much.

One of Those Seasons So Far (C.Compton/AJC)
Figured we’d go in a little different direction on this post and analyze what seems to be wrong with this Atlanta Falcons team. Coming of a 13-3 record, an NFC South Title, and the NFC’s #1 seed, the Birds seemed to be poised for another strong year after adding Julio Jones and Ray Edwards in the off-season...
For the third straight week, the Arizona Cardinals have put their big-time quarterback on the bench, and at a certain point, that may be more about performance than injury. Kolb's toe was the original reason for Kolb's absence from the Cardinals' offense, but Skelton has been far more effective in the last two games. We'll see if Skelton can continue his efficiency...
