The Atlanta Falcons head into their Week 12 matchup against
the Tampa Bay Buccaneers with two starters questionable after exiting last
weekend’s contest against the Arizona Cardinals; wide receiver Julio Jones and
cornerback Asante Samuel.
Jones entered the Cardinals’ game as questionable due to a
right ankle injury. After catching three passes for 33 yards against Arizona,
he exited the contest after aggravating his ankle injury. He is considered
questionable to play against the Buccaneers.
Samuel wasn’t injured prior to Sunday’s game against
Arizona, but the All-Pro cornerback exited the contest in first quarter with a
right shoulder injury. He sustained the injury while trying to tackle Cardinals
wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald. Samuel didn’t return and is also considered
questionable for Sunday’s matchup with Tampa Bay.
