Falcons Injury Report: 3 Starters Limited In Friday's Practice

The Atlanta Falcons injury report lists a number of key players as the Falcons gear up for their Monday Night Football showdown with Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos. Three of the four players listed on Friday's injury report are at the top of the depth chart, and the fourth is a backup for one of the three.

On offense, wide receiver Roddy White was limited with a groin injury. If Monday's game turns into a shootout, Matt Ryan is going to need all of his targets. Protection will also be key, making it all the more unfortunate that starting right tackle Tyson Clabo was limited with a hip injury.

On the defensive side of the ball, starting linebacker Sean Weatherspoon was limited in practice with a hamstring injury. To make things worse, backup linebacker Robert James was also limited.

With none of the players listed as out or as not participating in practice, their ability to play at full strength in Monday night's game is still uncertain. Atlanta will need a strong effort from anyone who can give one, whether it's their top performance or not.
