Atlanta Falcons Injury Report: Stephen Nicholas Doubtful, Brent Grimes Questionable

Despite the fact that nearly every single player on the Atlanta Falcons' active roster appeared at some point this week on the team's injury report, only linebacker Stephen Nicholas is listed as doubtful. On top of that, only one player, cornerback Brent Grimes, is listed as questionable. All others are listed as probable for Sunday's afternoon wildcard game in New York against the Giants.

Defensive end John Abraham, tight end Tony Gonzalez, wide receivers Julio Jones and Roddy White and running back Jason Snelling are among the players that practiced fully on Friday after not practicing at some point this week and are all listed as probable. Running back Michael Turner didn't practice fully all week after he was limited in practice on Thursday and Friday, but he is still considered probable for Sunday's game.

Considering the fact that the regular season is over and the Atlanta Falcons have gone through the same bumps and bruises that all other teams have, it's pretty amazing that they may be without only one player when they take the field against the Giants. Things like that can be the difference between playoff wins and losses.
