NFL inactives, Week 12: Falcons vs. Buccaneers

Grant Halverson

Eric Wright is out for Tampa Bay, while Julio Jones, Sean Weatherspoon and Asante Samuel are in for Atlanta.

The inactive lists have been released for Sunday's game between the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As expected, Julio Jones and Sean Weatherspoon will be on the field for the Falcons, while Eric Wright will sit out for the Bucs.

Weatherspoon is active for the first time since the Falcons' win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Oct. 28. Meanwhile, Jones is back on the field after leaving in the fourth quarter of Atlanta's victory over the Arizona Cardinals last week. Cornerback Asante Samuel, whose status was in question due to a shoulder injury, is active as well.

Wright has been hobbled by an Achilles tendon injury, which he originally suffered in October. He took a few hits to the area in the Buccaneers' win over the Carolina Panthers last week, and was severely limited in practice this week. He'll be replaced by rookie cornerback Leonard Johnson on Sunday, according to the team's official Twitter account.

Among the other questionable players for the Falcons, only defensive tackle Peria Jerry is inactive. He is joined by quarterback Dominique Davis, wide receiver Tim Toone, safety Charles Mitchell, defensive end Lawrence Sidbury and guards Phillip Manley and Harland Gunn.

Running back Michael Smith, safety Cody Grimm, linebacker Najee Goode, center Cody Wallace, wide receiver David Douglas and defensive tackle Matthew Masifilo are inactive for Tampa Bay, along with Wright.
