One week after facing the Jets without Wes Welker, the Patriots could be without Welker and fellow WR Randy Moss, who was held out of Friday’s practice with a back injury.
Welker, who’s nursing a knee injury, also missed practice Friday, and his status for Sunday’s meeting with the Falcons is expected to be a game-time decision.
Also questionable for the Patriots are TE Chris Baker (ankle), S Brandon Meriweather (ankle) and CB Shawn Springs (knee). QB Tom Brady (shoulder) is probable.
The only concern for the Falcons is RB Jerious Norwood, who’s listed as questionable with a head injury.
