ATLANTA (AP) - The Falcons' patchwork group of active wide receivers against the Buccaneers includes Darius Johnson, who was promoted from the practice squad this week, and Brian Robiskie, signed last week.
Roddy White is inactive for the first time in his nine-year career due to hamstring and ankle injuries. Leading receiver Julio Jones (right foot) was placed on injured reserve this week. Harry Douglas and Drew Davis are the starting receivers.
Atlanta running back Steven Jackson (hamstring) is missing his fourth straight game. Falcons left tackle Sam Baker (knee) and tight end Chase Coffman are inactive.
Receiver Mike Williams is starting for Tampa Bay after missing one game with a hamstring injury. Left guard Carl Nicks is out after undergoing surgery for MRSA infection.
