NFL Week 14, Atlanta Falcons Vs. Carolina Panthers Injury Report: Jason Snelling, Curtis Lofton 50/50 To Play

The final injury report before the Atlanta Falcons plays the Carolina Panthers was released Friday and though the Panthers could be without as many as seven players, only three Falcons are in danger of missing this NFC South showdown. Curtis Lofton was listed as questionable after missing practice Wednesday and Thursday but he was a full-go on Friday so I expect to see him out there at Bank of America stadium. Jason Snelling missed last week against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and he was absent from practice the entire week again. He's officially listed as questionable but I do not expect to play. The Panthers are a bad football team and the Falcons can afford to rest him now so that he's fully healthy for the New Orleans Saints in Week 16 and the playoffs beyond. Coy Wire is listed as doubtful after sitting out practice this week and, like Snelling, I do not expect to see him suit up in Carolina. All other Falcons either avoided the report entirely or are completely healthy.
