Jackson in, Baker out for Falcons

 

For the first time since Week 2, the Atlanta Falcons have taken the field with starting running back Steven Jackson, who has missed most of the year with a hamstring injury. Perhaps now the Falcons can find a semblance of a running game today against the Arizona Cardinals, who have a solid run defense.

It won’t help that starting left tackle Chris Baker, previously listed as questionable, is out for the third straight week with a knee injury. He was limited in practice amd hopeful to play, but has been replaced in he starting lineup by Lamar Holmes.

Starting wide receiver Roddy White will miss his second straight game with hamstring and ankle injuries, while running back Jason Snelling is also inactive with an anle injury.

Other inactives include linebacker Stephen Nicholas, wide receiver Brian Robiskie, guard Harland Gunn, and defensive tackle Travian Robertson.
