Falcons Vs. Texans Injury Report And Inactive List, Week 13: WR Julio Jones, RB Michael Turner Are Active

The Atlanta Falcons had key players limited in practice this week in wide receiver Julio Jones who has been slowed down by a hamstring injury over the past two months and starting running back Michael Turner also missed practices this week and was limited on Friday with a quad injury. Both Jones and Turner are active for today's game and are expected to assume their normal roles within the offense. 

The Falcons will be down one defensive starter in linebacker Stephen Nicholas who is out with a quad injury. Starting in Nicholas place will be Mike Peterson.

The Texans are down to their third-string quarterback in T.J. Yates, but besides that injury the Texans are relatively healthy and not missing any other starters for Sunday's game.
