With so many Atlanta Falcons taking "maintenance" days, it's hard to tell if a player is really injured or not. Looking at the list of players who sat out and realizing they are all veterans, I am going to assume none of them are seriously injured and will be fine to play against the Carolina Panthers. It is a must-win if the Falcons want to be playing at home for the NFC playoffs though some of the key starters may get rested if the game is out of hand.
