The Atlanta Falcons will be missing three offensive starters for Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the team announced Friday.

The team ruled out wide receiver Roddy White (hamstring/ankle), running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) and offensive tackle Sam Baker (knee).

The team is already without leading wide receiver Julio Jones, who is out for the season with a foot injury.

Toss up for Dog of the Week game. Strong challenge from Giants/Vikings.

Signing Jackson was the worst mistake that the Falcons have made in the team's history. It's really the opposite of signing Gonzales. Jackson hasn't wanted to play serious football in about two years now yet he's All World when it comes to cashing big checks.
