Falcons Vs. Bucs Injury Report: Roddy White, John Abraham In, Jason Snelling Likely Out

The Atlanta Falcons carry four running backs on their active roster (Ovie Mughelli notwithstanding) but heading into their Week 13 showdown with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, they'll only have two that are healthy. With Jason Snelling and Antone Smith both questionable after missing practice all week, starter Michael Turner and fourth-stringer Gartrell Johnson will be the primary ball-carriers as the Falcons attempt to win their 10th game of the year.

Smith has only one carry this season for minus-3 yards so his absence is a non-factor. JSnellz, on the other hand, is a big part of this offense. He's gained 539 yards from scrimmage and scored four touchdowns and more importantly, the Falcons were 0-2 in games he missed last season. As long as Turner is healthy, the Falcons will be fine but it's nice to have a healthy Snelling just in case the Burner gets bit by the injury bug.
