Roster Healthy For NFC Championship

Posted Jan 20, 2013

Although John Abraham is slowed by an ankle injury, he's scheduled to play on Sunday. Additionally, all players listed on the injury report are ready to go against the 49ers.

In the first NFC Championship game hosted in the Georgia Dome, the Falcons have their full complement of players. Though he was limited all week heading into Sunday, John Abraham will be playing against the San Francisco 49ers. He injured his ankle in the final game of the regular season and left last week's win over the Seahawks after 15 snaps.

Cornerback Chris Owens was ruled out for last week's game before it began, but he has been cleared to play. Though he's not a starter on defense, he provides depth to the secondary and is a valuable special teams player.

Inactives for the Falcons include QB Dominique Davis, OL Phillipkeith Manley, WR Tim Toone, OT Lamar Holmes, OL Harland Gunn, DE Lawrence Sidbury and DT Travian Robertson.

The 49ers enter the game in good condition injury wise. Their inactives include RB Jewel Hampton, DT Tony Jerod-Eddie, LB Cam Johnson, G Joe Looney, S Trenton Robinson, QB Scott Tolzien and DT Ian Williams.
