Injury-plagued Falcons take on skidding Giants

The New York Giants have lost three games in a row, giving up more than 30 points in all three, but the Atlanta Falcons have their own concerns coming into Monday night's game in Atlanta against the Giants.

The Falcons (2-4) ended a three-game losing streak with a 34-29 victory over the Tampa Buccaneers, but Atlanta lost two key receivers in that game -- Calvin Ridley (ankle) and Mohamed Sanu (hip). Neither practiced on Thursday, and it is unclear whether either will play against the Giants (1-5).

Earlier this week the Falcons placed running back Devonta Freeman on the injured reserve with a groin injury, and they have lost offensive lineman Andy Levitre for the season with a torn biceps.
