Falcons injury report: Moore, Owens out of ailing Falcons secondary

Josh D. Weiss-US PRESSWIRE

With safety William Moore and cornerback Chris Owens ruled out of Sunday's game, the Falcons may be vulnerable in the defensive backfield against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 17.

The Atlanta Falcons have ruled safety William Moore and cornerback Chris Owens out of Sunday's Week 17 tilt against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers due to hamstring injuries, leaving Atlanta somewhat thin in the secondary.

Owens last appeared in the Falcons' Week 14 loss to the Carolina Panthers, recording five tackles and forcing a fumble. He's appeared in nine games for Atlanta this season, with one start to his name. Moore has been a key contributor in the defensive backfield for Atlanta, with 75 tackles, four interceptions and two forced fumbles.

Meanwhile, star wide receiver Roddy White's consecutive games streak is in jeopardy; the wideout is listed as questionable with a knee injury. While White surely would want to keep his streak going, the Falcons may want to rest him and preserve his health for the playoffs.

Here's the full injury list for the Falcons, as listed on the team's official website:

Name Position Injury Status
Jonathan Babineaux DT Ribs Questionable
Cliff Matthews DE Hamstring Questionable
William Moore S Hamstring Out
Chris Owens CB Hamstring Out
Corey Peters DT Knee Questionable
Roddy White WR Knee Questionable
