ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons are without defensive end John Abraham, who is inactive for Sunday night's game against the Packers with a hip injury.
Abraham was listed as questionable after being limited in Friday's practice. It is not known when he suffered the injury. Kroy Biermann, who started 14 games last season, is filling in for Abraham.
The Falcons also are without center Todd McClure, who aggravated a knee injury in last week's win at Seattle.
Running back Ryan Grant is returning from a bruised kidney for the Packers. Right tackle Bryan Bulaga is missing his second straight game with a knee injury. Marshall Newhouse is again starting for Bulaga.
Linebacker Clay Matthews (quadriceps) is active after missing practice this week.
