Rams vs. Falcons 2013 injury report: Chris Long, Julio Jones questionable

Streeter Lecka

Chris Long is listed as questionable for the Rams, while several key players for the Falcons, including Roddy White and Julio Jones, are possible scratches on Sunday.

St. Louis Rams defensive end Chris Long has played all 81 games since he was drafted with the second overall pick in the 2008 NFL Draft, but he could be in jeopardy of missing action for the first time. Rams head coach Jeff Fisher listed Long as questionable on Friday, casting his availability for Sunday's game in doubt.

Both of Matt Ryan's big targets are banged up heading into this one, with Julio Jones and Roddy White each listed as questionable. Jones returned to practice on Thursday after being held out Wednesday and seems to be on track for significant playing time Sunday. White's outlook doesn't seem as rosy, however, as he admitted earlier this week that the injury he's been battling since the preseason is in fact a high ankle sprain.

He was used largely as a decoy against the Saints last week -- he had just two receptions for 19 yards -- and will likely play a similar role against the Rams. Starting cornerback Asante Samuel is also questionable with a thigh injury. Drew Brees burned the Falcons' secondary for over 350 yards passing during Samuel's absence in Week 1.
