Falcons injury report: Jones, Samuel, Weatherspoon all still questionable

New, 6 comments

The Falcons are still unsure whether they'll be able to get anything out of several top contributors when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.

The Friday injury report for the Atlanta Falcons listed top contributors Julio Jones, Asante Samuel and Sean Weatherspoon all as questionable, leaving their availability for Sunday's tilt against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers up in the air.

Samuel was limited in his return to action; the cornerback had missed the practices on Wednesday and Thursday. His presence could be critical for the Falcons against the Bucs and quarterback Josh Freeman.

Weatherspoon returned to limited practice Friday after he was held out of the team's Thursday workouts. The linebacker also practiced in a limited capacity Wednesday. Jones was limited in practice for the second consecutive day; he didn't practice on Wednesday.

Atlanta fans can take some comfort in noting that quarterback Matt Ryan, running back Michael Turner, kicker Matt Bryant and defensive linemen John Abraham and Jonathan Babineaux are all listed as probable.

Here's the full report:

Name Position Injury Status
John Abraham DE Back Probable
Jonathan Babineaux DT Neck Probable
Matt Bryant K Back Probable
Kevin Cone WR Groin Questionable
Peria Jerry DT Quadricep Questionable
Julio Jones WR Ankle Questionable
Charles Mitchell S Calf Out
Chris Owens CB Thigh Probable
Matt Ryan QB Finger (left) Probable
Asante Samuel CB Shoulder Questionable
Michael Turner RB Groin Probable
Vance Walker DT Ribs Questionable
Sean Weatherspoon LB Illness/Ankle Questionable
