Ravens Vs. Falcons Final Injury Report: Roddy White In, Sean Weatherspoon Out

Atlanta Falcons WR Roddy White will take the field for tonight’s game against the Baltimore Ravens. He and center Todd McClure were able to take a limited role in yesterday’s practice after suffering injuries against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

Rookie LB Sean Weatherspoon will miss his seventh game after missing each of this week’s practices. Also not playing tonight: DE Lawrence Sidbury, DT Trey Lewis, TE Justin Peelle, CB Dominique Franks, OL Garrett Reynolds, OL Mike Johnson, and QB John Parker Wilson.

The Falcons need White tonight. The Ravens are tough against the run, as always, and the Falcons’ best chance of getting Michael Turner and Jason Snelling going is to keep both Baltimore safeties wary of the deep ball.

Just as vital: McClure. With Ravens DT Haloti Ngata, an All-Pro contender, in the house, McClure will need a hand from guards Harvey Dahl and Justin Blalock, but without their veteran center the Falcons would have been forced to trot out rookie Joe Hawley against perhaps the league’s best nose tackle.

The Ravens are down safety Tom Zbikowski, who doesn’t start and has primarily been used as a punt returner.


Ravens Vs. Falcons: TV Time And Channels For NFL's First Thursday Night Game

The NFC South-leading Atlanta Falcons welcome the AFC North-leading Baltimore Ravens in the NFL’s first Thursday night game of the season, since apparently nobody counts the season-opening Thursday nighter as a Thursday night game, as that day has actually been renamed Footballday by Congress.

The game will be shown at 8:20 on NFL Network, which nobody has. If you’re in the Atlanta area, you’re sitting pretty and do not need to contact Sonny Purdue or whoever our governor is now about this outrage. I’m told Sonny Purdue is still our governor for the time being.

The game will also be shown on channel 36, which is apparently called myATL now after years of being called WATL. I’m learning so much about Georgia while typing up this post. Sadly, this won’t mean you get to sidestep Joe Theismann, as they’re just FWDing the NFL Network feed.

If that’s not enough for you, tune in to hear Wes Durham and Dave Archer on something called Dave FM, an outfit that kicked Z93 out of business long ago to my great surprise. Also, 99X is playing Enrique Iglesias right this minute.
