Falcons vs. Redskins inactives: Lousaka Polite, Michael Palmer out for Atlanta

The Atlanta Falcons and Washington Redskins have released their inactives for Sunday's Week 5 contest at FedEX Field. The biggest name on the inactives list for the Redskins is safety Cedric Griffin, who is expected to miss his second straight game due to a hamstring injury.

The official ruling on Griffin makes the Redskins very thin in the secondary, as another safety, Brandon Meriweather, is also on the inactive list. This may not bode well for a defense that's going against a hot quarterback in Matt Ryan.

Other players on Washington's inactive list are: quarterback Rex Grossman, guard Adam Gettis, guard Josh LeRibeus, wide receiver Dezmon Briscoe and linebacker Markus White.

Meanwhile, the Falcons got some good injury news. Center Todd McClure and safety William Moore are both active after being listed as questionable on Friday. However, fullback Lousaka Polite and tight end Michael Palmer will not play.

Other Falcons players listed as inactive are: quarterback Dominique Davis, cornerback Terrence Johnson, offensive tackle Lamar Holmes, defensive end Jonathan Massaquoi and defensive end Cliff Matthews
