Moore, Samuel held out for 3rd straight day
Atlanta Falcons strong safety William Moore and cornerback
Asante Samuel missed practice Friday for the third straight day and
are questionable for Sunday’s game at Carolina.
Moore has been sidelined since injuring a hamstring in the
Falcons’ home win over New Orleans on Nov. 29. He intercepted
quarterback Drew Brees twice and finished with 11 tackles.
Samuel played just three snaps before aggravating a right
shoulder injury against the Saints.
In his first season with Atlanta, Samuel, a four-time Pro Bowl
selection, has a team-high 13 passes defended.
Running back Michael Turner (elbow) and defensive tackle Peria
Jerry (thigh) are also questionable. Both were limited in practice
The Falcons (11-1) have won five straight against Carolina
