Game Day

The Falcons are in a bad spot this week, missing their starting RB and starting QB, Michael Turner and Matt Ryan. Also out for the Falcons are starters G Harvey Dahl and CB Chris Houston.

On the Saints' sideline, Lance Moore is in uniform for the first time since November 2, when the Saints played the Falcons in the Superdome. He's listed as the third quarterback, so is technically on the inactive list but is dressed. The Saints' usual quarterback, Chase Daniel, was released last week but still traveled with the team.

For the second week in a row, youngster Garrett Hartley will be the Saints' placekicker instead of veteran John Carney, who is inactive.

RB Mike Bell is inactive after picking up a knee injury in Washington. RB Reggie Bush is active.

Starting cornerbacks are expected to be Malcolm Jenkins and Mike McKenzie. Randall Gay is active, and is expected to be the nickelback. Usama Young will be the dime cornerback. Jabari Greer, Tracy Porter and newly-signed Marcus McCauley are inactive.

Also inactive for the Saints are K John Carney (healthy), Greer (sports hernia), Porter (MCL), McCauley (healthy), LB Marvin Mitchell (hamstring), and LB Scott Fujita (knee).
