FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons listed defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux as limited after the defensive tackle practiced Wednesday with an injured right ankle.

Atlanta (8-5) hosts the Jacksonville Jaguars (4-9) on Thursday night.

Babineaux, who did not practice Tuesday, has started all 57 of his games since Mike Smith was hired as Falcons head coach in 2008. The seven-year veteran has 19 career sacks, but just one in 10 games this season.

If Babineaux can't start, Peria Jerry will take his place at the three-technique spot next to nose tackle Corey Peters.

Cornerback Brent Grimes is still recovering from minor surgery on his right knee and will miss his third straight game. Dominique Franks is starting in Grimes' left-side spot.

Starting left tackle Will Svitek (groin) is listed as questionable.
