The Atlanta Falcons will be down four starters heading into Monday night's game against the Green Bay Packers with the possibility that star receivers Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley could miss the action as well.

Jones and Ridley are both listed as questionable, while defensive end Takk McKinley joins Keanu Neal, Ricardo Allen and Younghoe Koo as the players officially ruled out for Monday night. There is a positive spin to the injury report as well, though, as players like Kaleb McGary, Grady Jarrett and Foye Oluokun look to be in good shape heading into the prime-time matchup. The Falcons will need as many players on the field as possible for this important game.

Here is the full injury report for the Falcons from Saturday:

What it means

The Falcons won't like being down three defensive starters against the No. 1 scoring offense in the league, but things could have been much worse. Getting Foye Oluokun and Kendall Sheffield back will be big for this defense, and it appears Grady Jarrett and Dante Fowler will be good to go as well. Both Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley are the type of person to play through discomfort, but they will be game-time decisions for Atlanta. If the Falcons are in a shootout against the Packers, they will want to have those two on the field. Atlanta is a bit healthier than it was entering the Chicago game, but this is a much tougher opponent.
