According to a tweet from the Atlanta Falcons official twitter page, defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux has a rib injury and is questionable to return to the Falcons' game against the Carolina Panthers in Charlotte.
Babineaux was recently dealing with a neck injury and has been a frequent mention on the injury report this season, but has yet to miss a game. The 31-year-old eight-year veteran came into Sunday's game with 27 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
The Panthers currently lead the Falcons, 13-0, late in the first half as Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has outplayed Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan. Newton has 145 yards passing with a touchdown in addition to 45 yards rushing. Ryan has just 40 yards passing.
The Panthers have run three times as many plays as the Falcons, which has led to an advantage in time of possession of more than 15 minutes.
The Falcons are 11-1 and the Panthers are 3-9 this season.
