The injury news just keeps coming. Sam Baker is out. Steven Jackson is out. At least Asante Samuel is only questionable.
#Falcons CB Asante Samuel listed as questionable for third time this season. He has missed 1 game and only played 7 snaps in Week 2.— John Manasso (@jmanasso) September 20, 2013
The veteran cornerback has only played a handful of snaps this year as he's battled a thigh injury, and certainly he's no lock here. The Falcons are in such rough shape they may be tempted to push Samuel back into action.
I'm all for the Falcons letting Samuel sit this one out and hopefully get healthy. This isn't the best group of receivers the Falcons will face this year, and I'm confident that Desmond Trufant, Robert McClain and Robert Alford can do a quality job against Miami.
Look for Samuel's status to be updated shortly before gametime. Julio Jones and Roddy White are also questionable, but c'mon, son.
