Falcons FB Snelling listed as questionable for Bucs showdown

The Atlanta Falcons listed Jason Snelling as questionable for Sunday's game at Tampa Bay after the running back missed his third consecutive day of practice with a hamstring injury.

Snelling, the top backup to Michael Turner, was held out again Friday. Falcons coach Mike Smith said Thursday he hoped Snelling would be available for limited work Friday.

Snelling is second on the team with 300 rushing yards and two touchdowns, and he's also third with 35 catches for 239 yards and two touchdowns.

The Falcons could have a shortage of running backs against the Buccaneers. Another backup, Antone Smith, also is questionable after missing Friday's practice with a hamstring injury.

Smith said fullback Ovie Mughelli could help at running back if needed.

For the Buccaneers, linebackers Quincy Black (ankle) and Dekoda Watson (hamstring) were listed as questionable. Black didn't practice Friday, but Watson was limited.
