Falcons first-round draft pick Sean Weatherspoon is listed as questionable with a sprained right knee. Weatherspoon has started four games for the Falcons, but has not practiced since injuring the knee against Cleveland.

If he can't go, the Falcons will start Stephen Nicholas.

Defensive end John Abraham, who has a stiff back, is listed as questionable. He has not practiced fully all week. Obviously, Abraham's availability is a big issue for the Falcons, especially since he is going against Eagles left tackle King Dunlap, who is filling in for the injured Jason Peters.

Brian Finneran (knee) is listed as probable. He was a full practice participant Friday. His snaps might decrease, however, with the season debut of Michael Jenkins.

“We faced him last year and he is certainly a talented receiver," Eagles defensive coordinator Sean McDermott said. "They’ve got a ton of weapons on offense with the obvious ones being Roddy White and Tony Gonzalez, and then you add [wide receiver Harry] Douglas into the mix and [tight end Justin] Peelle and now Jenkins. And that’s not to slight what Brian Finneran does in his role in the offense. So it just adds another weapon to their overall skill set there.”
