White A Go Against Giants, Moore Out

Posted Dec 16, 2012

Safety William Moore is out for the second straight week, but Roddy White, who missed all practices this week, has been cleared to play.

Two key Falcons showed up as questionable for Sunday's game against the New York Giants. One will be playing and the other is missing his second straight game.

Roddy White has been cleared to play, but safety William Moore, who missed all practices this week, will not be active Sunday. White, second on the franchise's current consecutive games played list with 71 games, missed all practices this week as well, but his knee injury isn't serious enough to keep him out against the Giants.

Chris Hope will get his second start for the Falcons this season in place of Moore.

Other inactives for the Falcons include QB Dominique Davis, OL Phillipkeith Manley, WR Tim Toone, OL Harland Gunn, TE Chase Coffman and DE Lawrence Sidbury.

On Friday the Giants ruled out three starters: CB Prince Amukamara, RB Ahmad Bradshaw and S Kenny Phillips. Backup safety Tyler Sash was also ruled out early. Other inactives for the Giants include DE Adewale Ojomo, TE Adrien Robinson and DT Marvin Austin.
