CHARLOTTE -- Atlanta Falcons left tackle Sam Baker, who missed the last three games with a knee injury, is active for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers.

Head coach Mike Smith said Baker would be in the starting lineup, if healthy. That means Lamar Holmes is likely headed to the bench, unless the Falcons decided to start Holmes at right tackle ahead of Jeremy Trueblood.

Also inactive for the Falcons are wide receiver Roddy White and linebacker Stephen Nicholas. White has not yet recovered from hamstring and ankle injuries, while Nicholas has been sidelined by a quad injury.

The other inactives are safety Kemal Ishmael, guard Harland Gunn, tackle Ryan Schraeder, wide receiver Brian Robiskie, and defensive tackle Travian Robertson.

Safety William Moore (hip) and defensive end Osi Umenyiora (knee) are active despite being listed as questionable coming into the game.
