Allow me to state the obvious: It’s been a bad week on the injury front for the Falcons.
News earlier this week surrounded losing three starters to injured reserve. Then came news that Steven Jackson wouldn’t be available for Sunday’s game against Miami. On Friday, more bad news: left tackle Sam Baker has been ruled out of the game with a knee/foot injury.
Baker did not practice all week with the Falcons. The Falcons will have to determine who will slide into that left tackle spot. On the team’s unofficial depth chart, undrafted rookie Ryan Schraeder is listed as Baker’s backup, but the Falcons could do some switching around with veteran tackle Jeremy Trueblood now up to speed with the playbook.
Wide receivers Roddy White and Julio Jones, along with CB Asante Samuel, are questionable for Sunday’s game.
