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.
