Wednesday Injury Report: Zuttah, Biggers Sit Out

Head Coach Greg Schiano said on Monday that he was hopeful that two of his starters, left guard Jeremy Zuttah and left cornerback E.J. Biggers, would be able to return from recent injuries to play in the season finale at Atlanta.  On Wednesday, neither player practiced.

Zuttah (ankle) and Biggers (hip) were among five players held out of the week-opening workout, but they are obviously the top concerns.  Tight ends Dallas Clark and Nate Byham both missed the practice due to illness and left tackle Donald Penn was out for a non-injury related reason, but they are not likely to be serious issues for Sunday.

The Falcons held out four players, as well, and considering the fact that they have already clinched the top seed in the NFC playoffs, one might expect them to play it cautiously with their banged-up starters.  Those who missed practice on Wednesday included starting safety William Moore (hamstring) and starting wide receiver Roddy White (knee).
