The Atlanta Falcons will enjoy the services of both RB Jason Snelling and LB Curtis Lofton today. Both have been limited in practice this week and were questionable yesterday, Snelling with a hamstring and Lofton with a knee.
This will be Snelling’s first game since week 12 against the Green Bay Packers. Minus their utility man, the Falcons have placed a bigger load on RB Michael Turner than usual and given more of a role to the versatile Gartrell Johnson. It’ll be nice to give Turner a reduced role with the playoffs just around the corner, if Snelling is able to make a dent in those carry totals.
Lofton has yet to miss a game as the Falcons chief of police.
For the Seahawks, CB Roy Lewis, WR Brandon Stokley, and DB Walter Thurmond are questionable, and everybody else is either probable or good to go. Questionable usually means probable and probable usually means in, so it looks like we’ll have a pair of healthy teams at Qwest Field today.
