Falcons Injury Report a Mile Long

The Falcons are bruised and battered. According to ESPN, the injury report is pretty impressive (if you want to call it that).

Atlanta’s injury report was just about as lengthy Thursday as it was on Wednesday when the Falcons had to estimate an injury report because they didn’t practice. Eleven players are on Thursday’s report and running back Jerious Norwood, tackle Sam Baker, defensive tackle Thomas Johnson and receiver Roddy White did not participate in practice. Defensive end John Abraham, defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux and linebacker Curtis Lofton were among those who were limited. Stay tuned on Atlanta’s injuries as we get closer to Sunday. Although the Falcons seem to be catching a break with a home game against struggling Washington on Sunday, this team is beat up right now.

This does not even include long snapper Mike Schneck who was placed on IR this week. I hope Norwood can get back in action this week; he really helps with those dinks and dunks out of the backfield. Baker could probably use the time off after getting embarrassed on MNF. If Lofton is more than a little banged up, the defense can throw in the towel.
