Falcons LT Baker out after concussion tests

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Atlanta Falcons left tackle Sam Baker was on the inactive list for Sunday's game against Carolina after undergoing concussion tests this week.

Todd Weiner replaced Baker in the starting lineup and was to be matched up with Panthers defensive end Julius Peppers.

Baker has been forced to leave the last two games and was listed on the injury report as having an illness.

Receiver Laurent Robinson (knee) also did not dress for Atlanta.

For Carolina, kick returner Ryne Robinson (knee) was inactive for a fourth straight game despite returning to practice last week. Left guard Travelle Wharton was in the starting lineup after missing two games with a sprained right knee.

Panthers receiver Dwayne Jarrett, a second-round pick last year, was a healthy scratch for a second straight week.
