Buccaneers vs. Falcons Injury Report: Falcons banged up


The final game of the 2012 Tampa Bay Buccaneers season will take place on Sunday. The Bucs will be mostly healthy, while the Falcons are banged up. The question on everyone's mind, though, is whether the Falcons will play their starters for more than a few snaps. To that question, I have no answer. But here's the injury report for Sunday.

The Bucs suffered a couple of injuries in their last game, but Jeremy Zuttah and E.J. Biggers are likely to play despite missing the end of that game. Only one player is doubtful, and that is backup guard Roger Allen. Meanwhile, the Falcons ill be forced to miss safety William Moore and cornerback Christopher Owens, heavily hurting their defense, while defensive linemen Jonathan Babineaux, Cliff Matthews and Corey Peters are Questionable and even wide receiver Roddy White could miss Sunday's game. Those are a lot of injuries, and the Falcons are likely to keep them out given that there's almost no incentive for them to play these players.
