The Falcons survived an Eagles invasion of the Georgia Dome, escaping with a win and evening the Atlanta record to 1-1.

It gets no easier in Week Three, when the Falcons return to Tampa to face a Buccaneers team that still believes it should have won both games in the annual rivalry last season, a point quarterback Josh Freeman made earlier this week on NBC SportsTalk.

As the Falcons prepare for the NFC South showdown, two of their key players were limited in practice on Wednesday.  Quarterback Matt Ryan has a knee injury, and receiver Roddy White has a thigh injury.

Also limited were defensive end Ray Edwards (foot) and center Todd McClure (knee).  Missing practice were defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (knee) and cornerback Kelvin Hayden (hamstring).

For the Bucs, four players didn’t participate in practice:  linebacker Quincy Black (ankle), tackle James Lee (knee), receiver Sammie Stroughter (ankle), and tight end Kellen Winslow (not injury related).

    Matt probably tore his labia when he did that improvised split.

    Matt was limited to the prone position, groaning while he slowly moved his limbs back and forth.

    Watching Ryan’s leg bend sideways on that “splits play” I would not be a bit surprised if he’s got significant knee damage. Get well soon, Matt.

    Matty Ice and Roddy are gonna bounce back this game. Fantasy-wise.

    I hope they both play. Want the Falcons at full strength so there is no bitching when the Bucs take care of business!

    I hope the Bucs beat them badly and knock Dunta out for the season.
