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

on Friday.

The Falcons (11-1) have won five straight against Carolina

(3-9).
