One needs only a quick look at Monday’s Injury Report to see the disparity in health between the Ravens and Atlanta Falcons heading into Thursday’s game.

The Ravens have only one player (safety Tom Zbikowski) on the report while the Falcons have nine.

Atlanta Falcons wide receiver Roddy White highlighted the report. White did not practice Monday after suffering a knee injury in Sunday’s game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

White, who is second in the NFL in receiving yards (796) and receptions (58), injured his left knee during the first quarter. He was in and out of the game from then on, notching four receptions for 49 yards.

When asked whether he would play against the Ravens, White said, “I’m going to be playing this Thursday.” On Monday, Falcons Head Coach Mike Smith said White “will be ready to go.”

Falcons linebackers Sean Weatherspoon (did not participate) and Curtis Lofton (limited) are each dealing with knee injuries along with running back Jason Snelling (limited).

Zbikowski (foot) has missed the last two Ravens games and did not participate Monday.

“I think we feel great,” linebacker Ray Lewis said Monday. “You know, looking at the guys bounce around, you saw a lot of guys in earlier today and just getting a little treatment on whatever they needed to get treatment on. But I think overall, we came out pretty healthy as a team.”
