Unlike the New Orleans Saints, the Atlanta Falcons have a relatively short injury list for their game tonight in the Georgia Dome.

Defensive tackle Peria Jerry(hamstring) and cornerback Asante Samuel(shoulder) are both questionable for the Falcons, but some suspect that Samuel could indeed play.

It would be a good boost for their secondary since Samuel caused Saints quarterback Drew Brees some grief in their last game and picked him off early in the first quarter, almost scoring a touchdown after the interception.

One key player that the Falcons didn’t have against the Saints last time was linebacker Sean Weatherspoon who was out with an ankle injury.  Although he was limited in practice Weatherspoon was listed as probable.
