Cards, Falcons each down a starting DE for wild-card matchup

GLENDALE, Ariz. -- The Atlanta Falcons and Arizona Cardinals each were without a starting defensive end in their wild card playoff game on Saturday.

Atlanta's Jamaal Anderson and Arizona's Travis LaBoy were inactive because of injuries.

Anderson did not practice all week and missed his second game in a row with a high ankle sprain. LaBoy was limited in practice Thursday and Friday and sat out his third consecutive game, also with an ankle injury.

Chauncey Davis started in place of Anderson and Bertrand Berry in place of LaBoy.
