Todd McClure, Jonathan Babineaux Declared Out For Sunday's Game

The good news is that most of the injury report for this week features guys who are probable for the game.

The bad news is that Todd McClure is out, again. That means Joe Hawley and Garrett Reynolds will continue to be two-thirds of the interior offensive line. Neither is terrible, but both are inexperienced and the Eagles can bring some heat from the defensive line. Not exactly an ideal situation.

As we already knew, Jonathan Babineaux is out for this game. The good news is that Corey Peters is probable and will almost certainly start alongside Peria Jerry. If the Falcons had to roll without Babs and Peters, it would have been less than ideal. As it is, the Falcons can put two quality starters out there and rotate in Vance Walker. That's not bad at all.

The only other item of note here is that Chris Owens was only able to go through a limited practice Friday, and is considered questionable for the game. Without Owens, the Falcons would lean on either Kelvin Hayden or Dominique Franks, depending on whether Hayden is up to speed on the team's defense at this point. My money's on Hayden.
