Six Atlanta Falcons were listed as “questionable” for Saturday night’s game against the Detroit Lions, including wide receiver Roddy White (knee), who has yet to miss a game during his NFL career. White’s consecutive games streak currently stands at 126, the second-longest active streak among NFL receivers. In addition to White, right tackle Tyson Clabo (thigh), defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux (ribs) and safety William Moore (hamstring) are “questionable” for the Falcons. The Lions are unlikely to have tight end Brandon Pettigrew, who is “doubtful” with an ankle injury. Lions safety Louis Delmas has been limited all season by a knee injury that has him “questionable” for Saturday night. Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin practiced fully all week and, barring a setback over the weekend, will start Sunday’s game against the Philadelphia Eagles. Two key Redskins are “questionable” – right tackle Tyler Polumbus, who is coming off a concussion, and defensive end Stephen Bowen, who has a biceps injury. For the Eagles, fullback Stanley Havili (hamstring) is out and backup fullback Chris Polk is “doubtful” with a toe injury. Michael Vick is “probable” after missing the last five games with a concussion but is expected to be the No. 3 quarterback behind starter Nick Foles and backup Trent Edwards. After initially listing defensive tackle Justin Smith (left elbow) as “doubtful” on Friday’s injury report, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh upgraded Smith to “questionable”, which is a good sign that the All-Pro will try and give it a go in Sunday night’s game against the Seattle Seahawks. The 49ers also listed linebacker Clark Haggans (shoulder) as “doubtful” and wide receiver Mario Manning ham (shoulder) is “questionable”. For the Seahawks, wide receiver Sidney Rice (knee) is “questionable”, as is cornerbacks Walter Thurmond (hamstring) and Marcus Trufant (hamstring). Cornerback Richard Sherman is “probable” after missing Friday’s practice for non-injury reasons, which was presumably for his hearing for his appeal of a four-game PEDs-related suspension. Given the late stage of the hearing, a ruling probably will not be handed down this weekend, clearing Sherman to play in a game where the Seahawks have an opportunity to clinch a playoff berth. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw (knee/foot), right guard Chris Snee (hip) and defensive end Justin Tuck (shoulder) headline a group of eight New York Giants who are “questionable” for Sunday afternoon’s must-win showdown with the Baltimore Ravens. Bradshaw and Snee were limited in Friday’s practice, an indicator that they’ll play, while Tuck did not participate in the session. Wide Hakeem Nicks (knee), defensive tackle Chris Canty (neck) and cornerback Prince Amukamara (hamstring) were listed as “probable”. The Baltimore Ravens declared inside linebacker Jameel McClain “out” with a neck injury and listed safety Bernard Pollard (chest) as “doubtful”. Among the seven Ravens listed as “questionable” are guard Marshal Yanda (ankle), wide receiver Torrey Smith (head), fullback Vonta Leach (ankle), and linebacker Dannell Ellerbe (ankle). Smith has yet to clear a concussion protocol test, head coach John Harbaugh confirmed on Friday. No final decision has been made, but linebacker Ray Lewis, who has been on the shelf since Week 7 with a triceps tear, could return on Sunday , the Baltimore Sun reports.
