Jenkins sick, becomes latest Falcons WR listed as questionable
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. -- The Atlanta Falcons placed wide receiver Michael Jenkins on their injury report as questionable Saturday because of an undisclosed illness.
To add another wideout to their 53-man roster, the Falcons released running back Aaron Stecker and signed Troy Bergeron from their practice squad.
The Falcons (5-3) will visit the Carolina Panthers (3-5) on Sunday potentially without either starting receiver. Pro Bowl wideout Roddy White also is listed as questionable with an injured knee and was limited in all three practices this week.
Jenkins, a fourth-year starter and a first-round draft pick by the Falcons in 2004, didn't miss practice this week. Team spokesman Reggie Roberts said he wasn't sure about the severity of Jenkins' illness.
No. 3 receiver Brian Finneran is ailing with a knee injury and didn't practice this week after he left last Sunday's victory over the Washington Redskins and couldn't return.
The Falcons also could be without starting left tackle Sam Baker (ankle) and No. 2 running back Jerious Norwood (hip) against the Panthers. Neither participated this week, and both are listed as questionable.
