Falcons Friday Injury Report For Week Twelve

The Atlanta Falcons are dinged up, battered and dented, as usual. But they might actually be a little healthier than the long list of names would suggest.

For the week, there's only one player who's definitely going to miss the game. That would be Kelvin Hayden, who has been a pretty decent nickel back all year long. With him out, the team will turn to universally but not necessarily justifiably reviled Chris Owens or Dominique Franks. We all hope the drop-off isn't apparent.

From there, there are three questionables. One is Sam Baker, who has missed the last several weeks and may be held out again with Will Svitek playing quite well in relief.

The second is Brent Grimes, which is a major concern given that Grimey is the team's best playmaking cornerback and a great coverage guy. If he and Hayden were to miss the game, Owens would probably be starting. I'm not totally comfortable with that.

Finally, Vance Walker is questionable with a groin injury after not being listed on the injury report up until today. The team won't miss him quite as much as some of the others, but Walker's solid depth at defensive tackle. Hopefully he's up for the game.

Everyone else is probable and should be all systems go for the Vikings. What say you?
