Atlanta Falcons Vs. Tampa Bay Bucs Injury Report: Roddy White, John Abraham Return To Practice

After listing a season-high nine players on Wednesday's injury report, the Atlanta Falcons, apparently, were just messing with us. At this point, with seven of those nine players practicing fully, it's safe to say rest was the primary cause for missing practice. Through 12 weeks of the season and a 9-2 record, I'm not going to argue if coach Mike Smith wants to give the boys a day off every now and then.

The only players still missing practice are running backs, Jason Snelling and Antone Smith. Both players are battling hamstring injuries and are in danger of missing Week 13's tilt with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Snelling injury is obviously the biggest concern since he's proven he can carry the load should Michael Turner miss time. Without him in the lineup, every time Turner takes more than three seconds to get up after a tackle, my heart would beat a little faster.

Friday's report will go along way towards finding out if Gartrell Johnson will be part of the gameplan or not. The full report from both teams, courtesy of the official site is below:
