FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons running back Michael Turner, who has not practiced since suffering a high right ankle sprain last Sunday, was listed as "doubtful" Friday for Sunday's game against the New York Gaints.
The team released its NFL-mandated injury report. Also, wide receiver Brian Finneran was declared out for the game, an important NFC battle between two 5-4 teams.
Under NFL rules, the "doubtful" designation means that there is a 75 percent chance that Turner will not play. He's the Falcons' leading rusher and would be replaced by Jason Snelling and Aaron Stecker. Running back Jerious Norwood (right hip flexor) who has not played in the past four games, might be available. He was listed as questionable.
Safety Erik Coleman (knee, questionable), wide receiver Roddy White (knee, questionable) and left tackle Sam Baker (ankle, probable) were also on the injury report.
