There were only a few players that might not suit up this weekend, and really, they were all on the opposing side. The Philadelphia Eagles get back a starting linebacker, but are short their rookie corner Sidney Jones.

Nothing huge here, as Jones are rarely played this season.
What about the Falcons? The only surprising thing at this point would be one of these players being active.
Hall is the only player who has been active with any sort of regularity, but the Falcons have obviously gone with the slower Nick Williams probably because he can catch. His biggest contribution will be on special teams.
I don’t think any of this news tips the scales one way or another, but it’s always good to see no one pops up with an injury after stretching.
