Wednesday injury update: Panthers bruised, Falcons broken

While it's only the first practice of the week the Atlanta Falcons are hurting... badly. We've already heard about Julio Jones missing Sunday's game, but there's also a possibility the Falcons could be without their starting TE, C, RG, DE and SS with their nickel back also hurting. Yes, it's that bad for Atlanta. 

Meanwhile for Carolina the situation is far less severe.

Carolina Panthers

Name Position Injury Status
Gaither, Omar LB Knee DNP
Otah, Jeff OL Back DNP

We knew about Gaither, and Otah is missing his typical Wednesday practice due to tightness. After the jump we'll see the beleaguered Falcons.

Atlanta Falcons

Name Position Injury Status
Abraham, John DE Groin DNP
Babineaux, Jonathan DT Knee Limited
Gonzalez, Tony TE Elbow DNP
Jones, Julio WR Hamstring DNP
Matthews, Cliff DE Knee Limited
McClure, Todd C Knee DNP
Moore, William S Neck DNP
Owens, Chris CB Concussion DNP
Reynolds, Garrett OL Ankle DNP
Sanders, James S Hamstring Limited
White, Roddy WR Knee Limited

Pretty crazy list, right? If only some of these key players miss Sunday's game it could be a very long day for the Falcons. This game might have just gotten a lot easier.
