NFL Injury Report:
The Atlanta Falcons have already ruled out safety William
Moore for today’s regular season finale against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, while
they have wide receiver Roddy White and defensive lineman Jonathan Babineaux
listed among those questionable to play.
Moore missed practice all week due to his hamstring injury
and will not play today. Cornerback Chris Owens is also out due to a hamstring
Atlanta has four others listed on their injury report as
questionable to suit up against the Bucs, but all could be held out of the
contest considering the Falcons have already clinched home field advantage
through the playoffs.
White is still hampered by a knee injury, but he would
likely play if today’s game were meaningful. Beyond White, Babineaux (ribs),
and fellow defensive linemen Cliff Matthews (hamstring) and Corey Peters (knee)
are questionable to play against Tampa Bay.

FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith said that starting right cornerback Dunta Robinson is in the NFL's concussion protocol but "is moving through it at a very good pace" and said he "fully" expects both Robinson and defensive end John Abraham to play in the team's playoff game on Jan. 13.

Records: Falcons (13-2, 3-2 in NFC South); Buccaneers (6-9, 2-3).

The Bucs were hoping to bounce back against St. Louis last week following a blowout loss to the Saints the previous week. Unfortunately that did not happen and Josh Freeman had another bad game. Facing lots of scrutiny in his young career, he and the team are hoping to end the season on a high note at Atlanta. However, the Bucs may not see Atlanta’s best team on the field as they...
The Atlanta Falcons lost a pair of starters on defense
yesterday during their 22-17 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, lineman John
Abraham and cornerback Dunta Robinson, reports Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com.
The Falcons lost starting cornerback Dunta Robinson to a head
injury in the first quarter and defensive end John Abraham to an ankle
injury in the fourth quarter. Abraham was...
The Bucs wanted to end the season with a win and snap a five-game losing streak. After beating the Falcons on Sunday 22-17, they did just that and gave some sense of optimism for 2013. The Falcons put their starters in for the entire game even though they had the number one seed locked up for the NFC playoffs. On the other sidelines, Tampa Bay played their best football in all three...
When can a loss be better for a professional football team than a win? Most NFL players and coaches likely would say never. Unless, somewhere during the loss a new team star who was on the trading block is discovered.Which still translates to pretty much never.As I watched the Atlanta Falcons lose 22-17 at home to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers during the last regular season game, I tried...

Falcons safety William Moore will miss his fourth straight game with a hamstring injury on Sunday, perhaps putting into question whether he will be ready for the teams playoff game in two weeks.
Moore has a history with hamstring injuries, as he suffered two during his rookie season of 2009 that, along with a knee injury, limited him to two games that year. On Oct. 28 of that year...
Roddy White: Are you crazy? I don’t care if he doesn’t practice all week or is reported to have a hard cast around his knee. He’s clearly going to play, if the last two weeks are any indication, and you have to treat this like we treated Calvin Johnson’s knee injury: they’re resting him so he’s ready to go come Sunday. However, there is one very LARGE caveat to the...
