Falcons - Buccaneers Injury Report: Quincy Black Doubtful, Kellen Winslow Questionable

LB Quincy Black hasn't practiced all week so his listing of Doubtful on the injury report is no surprise. It seems extremely unlikely he'll be ready to play against the Atlanta Falcons. Expect to see Dekoda Watson starting in his stead. Watson has looked good when he's been on the field and has been included in some pass rush packages. Mason Foster will take over Quincy Black's nickel duties.

TE Kellen Winslow's listing of Questionable certainly is a surprise, though. Winslow usually misses some practice time during the week, but he hasn't been listed on the injury report the past two weeks. If Winslow can't go the Bucs lose a major weapon on offense. DE Tim Crowder was also listed as Questionable, which hurts the depth at defensive end a little but won't seriously affect the Tampa Bay defense. 

The Atlanta Falcons will miss DT Jonathan Babineaux and CB Kelvin Hayden on Sunday, as both are listed as Out on the injury report. Babineaux is easily their best lineman, while Hayden started against the Philadelphia Eagles. The Falcons also listed QB Matt Ryan, WR Roddy White, DE Ray Edwards and DE John Abraham as Probable, while LB Stephen Nicholas was listed as Questionable. Players listed as Probable almost always play.
