Coach Mike Smith hasn't commented on whether WR Michael Jenkins (shoulder) will play Sunday or not. But Jenkins' name is penciled in as a probable starter against Pittsburgh. Jenkins injured his shoulder in an intrasquad scrimmage on Aug. 6.

2 minutes ago - With DT Jonathan Babineaux suspended Sunday for violating the NFL's substance abuse policy, the Falcons listed DT Trey Lewis as a starter on the unofficial depth chart. Lewis had his best preseason since Atlanta drafted him in 2007. Falcons RapidReports

Is the NFL still using the Probable, Questionable, Doubtful statuses or is there new lingo now? I always wondered if there was a fine or some type of punishment if a team listed a player as "OUT" & then started him. I would imagine the mafia would also be ticked & would put as hit out on a team for doing so due to losing money on bets. LOL

Very true Brady has been Probable for the last 3 years.

Jenkins hasn't been a proper threat when healthy, why are fans expecting him to be coming off a shoulder injury against one of the leagues more physical defenses.

If he does play, he will be a non-factor against that Steelers secondary.

The Steelers will totally ignore him.

They wont even put one defender on him.

Jenkins will not block anybody either.

No way does Jenkins occupy 2 defenders.

The guy who is covering him and the guy that Jenkins is

going to put a Block on.

Go figure.

If Finn catches 2 or 3 balls it is a wash. I hope Jenkins

is ready but if he isn't we should still be o.k.

This says a lot about what we expect out of Jenkins.

If an old double ACL tear 4th WR can catch 2-3 balls at the #2 slot, then it would be a wash with Jenkins being out, they says a lot about how far away this offense is from having a legitimate #2 WR threat.

another sissy reply that takes what was said out of context! No where did I say that he would be ignored!

Have you ever had a dislocated shoulder? Have you ever had a torn muscle in your shoulder? Have you ever had one of the two and tried to play WR? I have!

All I'm saying is that he will be fresh off a shoulder injury, don't look for him to make a huge impact against one of the leagues more physical defenses. He struggles to make huge impacts against strong defensive teams when he is healthy.

Anybody they put over there in the #2 slot is going to have a defender, and is going to block somebody, it doesn't make Jenkins better than anyone else.

Not in my opinion. It says more about what we expect out of:

Turner, Norwood, Douglas, White and Gonzalez. There are not

enough balls to go around. What is to keep one or more of those

catches from being game winners? Finn is taller than Jenkins and

red zone catches are important!

It can be viewed both ways.

I just choose to view it as a telling factor of how much we need a proper threat as our #2 WR.

hold up, finn isnt a slouch now... he has put up decent numbers in the past, and still shows that he has if not the best one of the best hands on the team....

not enough balls to go around???? thats not entirly true, offenses only get a cretain amount of posessions in a game, its up to a defense to get the ball back to the offense to get more opprotunities to score(more balls to players)... how do u think manning passed for 4000+ yards and addia still had 1000+ yards in the same season, look at the vikings as well, all there key players had career years... i dnt believe in the ''theres not enough balls'' **** Arizona had three WR with 1000+ yards, i kno they throw the ball, but its not about scheme, im just talking about how many balls they dished out to players....

so i think if the defense can just continue to get off the field on third downs, this offense will flourish even more then 08.....

Lewis showed a lot of potential his rookie year before he got hurt. He has basiclly come out of left field to make the team this year, but he has had the potential the whole time. If he plays like he should be able to, Babineux comes back and plays like he always does, and we get solid production from Jerry and Peters; our interior rotation will be nasty.

yeah your right, he's only been the 4th best receiver on our roster the last 4 years because everyone else was so fantastic

I've always like Finn, but he wouldn't be a WR on 3/4 of the league's rosters.
