Falcons Vs. Chargers Injury Report: 6 Atlanta Starters Were Limited At Wednesday's Practice

The Atlanta Falcons had eight players listed on their injury report following Wednesday's practice. It was no surprise that cornerback Chris Owens sat out since he suffered a concussion in the teams win on Monday night. There are however six starters who were limited: John Abraham, Tyson Clabo, Julio Jones, Stephen Nicholas, Sean Weatherspoon and Roddy White.

Besides these players having nagging injuries, they likely were limited since they are playing on a short week. So, the coaching staff wants to make sure these key players get the rest they need for Sunday's game against the San Diego Chargers.
