The Atlanta Falcons secondary took a hit after it was announced that cornerback Brent Grimes will be inactive for today's wildcard matchup with the New York Giants.
Full inactives for Falcons: QB - J Wilson, CB - B Grimes, LB - S Nicholas, C - B Romberg, OL - K Chambers, WR - K Meier, DE - C Matthews— Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) January 8, 2012
Grimes also sat out last week's season finale against Tampa Bay and the Falcons defense could have used him as they try to corral a talented set of Giants receivers led by Victor Cruz. Linebacker Stephen Nicholas is also inactive for the Falcons but all other key players are suited and ready to go.
