This is the healthiest, arguably, that the team has been in many moons. Unfortunately, the Falcons' starting center won't be joining them.

According to the team and D. Orlando Ledbetter at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, McClure is a confirmed out against the Packers on Sunday night. That means Joe Hawley will once again be asked to step up and start. Hawley was unremarkable but solid enough in his starts thus far in 2011, and he'll get another audition for the starting job down the line. Let's hope he holds up.

The only other two players who are even questionable—and both are listed as questionable—are John Abraham and Jonathan Babineaux. You can't keep John Abraham off the field with horse tranquilizers and a Turkish prison, so I'm betting he'll be all systems go against the Packers.

The other question mark is Jon Babineaux. Having him back would lift the Falcons' pass rush up, something that is sorely needed in the weeks ahead. It would also help the Falcons get at Aaron Rodgers in the here and now, which is also always a huge plus.
