Right cornerback Fabian Moreau, who’s started every game, left the game Sunday with a hamstring injury against the Buccaneers. We know those hamstrings can be tricky.

Avery Williams and Kendall Sheffield are listed as his backups, but rookie Darren Hall has been getting some action recently.

The Falcons also could be without Richie Grant (ankle) and outside linebacker Ade Ogundeji (ankle), who suffered injuries against the Bucs.
