Falcons Friday Injury Report: Two Birds Out Against Panthers

Short but not sweet. That about sums up this post.

First of all, Julio Jones is out. Ditto Chris Owens, who suffered a concussion last week was was never all that likely to play. The Falcons can patch over both absences, but it's a lot easier to replace Owens at the nickel than it is to replace Jones outside. Harry Douglas has some big shoes to fill this week, especially after a slow start to the season.

The rest of the injury report is mined with questionables, which is Mike Smith's way of saying a player might be in perfect health or might, in fact, have been infected with a virus that causes them to lurch through empty streets at night, pining for brains. You really don't know.

On the list, in no particular order, are John Abraham (uh oh), Todd McClure (also uh oh), Garrett Reynolds (sort of uh oh, given Brett Romberg's fine performance in relief last week) and James Sanders (?). The rest of the list is probable, and out of these, only Reynolds and McClure are huge question marks to me. I'm willing to bet Abe plays, and if Sanders doesn't, the Falcons will probably survive.
