Kevin Liles-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire
The Falcons released today's injury report. There are no huge surprises, but there are some concerns.
Jonathan Babineaux (groin) and Antone Smith (hamstring) were both elevated from limited to full participation, and are probable for Sunday against the Redskins. There were no setbacks for Julio Jones (hand), Stephen Nicholas (thigh) or Chris Owens (head), all of whom fully participated in practice, and are all probable for Sunday.
Todd McClure (pectoral) and William Moore (always ready, but, hip) both maintained their limited participation designations, and are listed as questionable for Sunday. Lousaka Polite (hamstring) did practice today for the first time this week, and is still listed as questionable for Sunday. Michael Palmer (shoulder) is definitely out for Sunday.
Tommy Gallarda will have to step up in Palmer's absence. He did catch a touchdown pass last week, even though offensive pass interference negated it. Polite was not active last week, either, and Jason Snelling is always a reliable substitute. McClure and Willy Mo are troubling, but hopefully they will be healthy enough by Sunday to contribute.
