Atlanta Falcons Week 5 injury report


The Atlanta Falcons have already ruled out running back Steven Jackson for tomorrow night’s primetime meeting with the New York Jets, but there are also a number of other players on the roster who could be out of action when the two teams take the field.

Both wide receivers  – Julio Jones and Roddy White — are listed as questionable, along with cornerback Asante Samuel.

The Falcons will hope that at least one of their top receiving options will be available for the game, but if not, Matt Ryan will need to rely heavily on tight end Tony Gonzalez.

Here is the Falcons Week 5 injury report for their Monday night match up against the Jets:
