Quarterback Matt Ryan and running back Michael Turner are inactive for the Atlanta Falcons against the New Orleans Saints, but defensive tackle Jonathan Babineaux is in uniform.

Babineaux was active on Sunday despite his arrest Thursday night on a felony marijuana possession charge.

Ryan missed his second straight game with turf toe. Chris Redman was making his second straight start. Turner was out with an ankle sprain, leaving Jerious Norwood as the starter.

Offensive guard Harvey Dahl (ankle) and cornerback Chris Houston (hamstring) also were inactive for Atlanta.

Receiver Lance Moore (ankle, hamstring), running back Mike Bell (knee), cornerbacks Tracy Porter (knee) and Jabari Greer (groin) and linebacker Scott Fujita (knee) were inactive for the Saints.
