As the Falcons prepare for a blacked out battle of the unbeatens in San Diego, their top two wideouts are fighting through injuries.

Both Julio Jones (thigh) and Roddy White (knee) were limited in practice on Wednesday and Thursday.

Also limited for the Falcons on Thursday were defensive end John Abraham (knee), tackle Tyson Clabo (hip), linebacker Stephen Nicholas (thigh), and linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (thigh).

Absent from practice each of the last two days were cornerback Christopher Owens (head) and running back Antone Smith (hamstring).

For the Chargers, tackle Jared Gaither (back) didn’t practice either day. Ditto for cornerback Shareece Wright (foot). All other injured Chargers fully participated, including tight end Antonio Gates (ribs), running back Ryan Mathews (clavicle), tight end Dante Rosario (calf), receiver Eddie Royal (shoulder), and running back Curtis Brinkley (knee).

    Jones and White I’m not concerned about. They’re world class athletes and White has never missed a game. It’s Chris Owens out with an injury labeled as “head” that has me spooked.

    Physical/emotional Peyton Bowl on MNF, short week, long travel and the Bolts new found physicality with the game played at home = Chargers 3-0

    It doesn’t matter if the Chargers are 3-0. They won’t make the playoffs.

    Who cares about owens. It sucks that our best players on both sides of the ball are injured

    This will be a tough game for the Falcons. We can only hope Phillip Rivers comes out like Peyton on Monday and throws. Could be a long night for the Falcons if Rivers is on.
