CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Atlanta’s wide receiver situation is still very much up in the air.
Although there has been a report that Michael Jenkins will play, that’s not definite yet, a source just said. The Falcons are hoping Jenkins, who’s been fighting a virus for several days, will be able to play. But they’re waiting until about 11:30 a.m. to make a final decision. Fellow starter Roddy White, who has been dealing with a knee injury, will play, the source said.
Veteran backup receiver Brian Finneran will not play. The Falcons added some insurance at receiver Saturday night when they elevated Troy Bergeron from the practice squad. They also released running back Aaron Steccker.
