Falcons' Clabo, Weatherspoon questionable for game against Broncos

Atlanta Falcons starting right tackle Tyson Clabo (hip) and weakside linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (hamstring) were limited in practice Saturday and were listed on the official injury report as questionable for Monday’s game against the Denver Broncos.


If Clabo does not play, the Falcons would have to use their third tackle, Mike Johnson is listed as the backup right tackle on the team’s depth chart. He has played in just three NFL games with no starts.

Clabo is set to matchup against Denver rookie defensive end Derek Wolfe and also be responsible at times for linebacker Von Miller when he rushes off the edge.

Left tackle Sam Baker is set to face Denver defensive end Elvis Dumervil.

Wide receiver Roddy White (groin) and linebacker Robert James (knee) fully participated in practice and were listed as probable for the game.

For the Broncos, guard Chris Kuper (forearm) did not practice and was declared out for the game. Cornerback Chris Harris (ankle) and guard Phillip Blake (thumb) were listed as questionable. Guard Manny Ramirez (elbow) and wide receiver Demaryius Thomas (shoulder) were listed as probable.

CARDINALS: Quarterback John Skelton is listed as doubtful for today’s game at New England, but coach Ken Whisenhunt is refusing to rule him out altogether.

Skelton sprained his right ankle in the fourth quarter of last week’s game against Seattle. Kevin Kolb relieved him and directed the decisive touchdown drive in the Cardinals’ 20-16 victory.

COLTS: Coach Chuck Pagano says outside linebacker Dwight Freeney will not play today against Minnesota, and receiver Austin Collie is doubtful.
