The Atlanta Falcons have fought and clawed all the way to the NFC Championship game and they are not about to let anything stand in their way of an NFL Championship. They are ready for anything the Green Bay Packers bring at them and they're going to do it with a very healthy team. The Falcons are heading into Sunday's game with an injury report that started with four names on it at the start of the week, but that now has not a single one to be seen.

Atlanta Falcons have a clean bill of health

At the start of practice this week, four players landed on the injury watch-list for the Falcons.

A couple of them are key players on the team and Atlanta knew that they would need them on the field against the Packers if they had true intentions on reaching the Super Bowl.

  • WR Julio Jones
  • WR Taylor Gabriel
  • DT Jonathan Babineaux
  • S Keanu Neal

By the time Friday had rolled around, all four players were removed from the injury report and the Falcons submitted an empty one to the NFL. Neal, Babineaux, and Gabriel were all a full-go in practice on Friday and will be ready for Sunday's match-up with the Packers. Julio Jones returned to practice on Friday on a limited basis, but he will have no restrictions on him for this weekend's game.

NFL counting on competitive games in Championship Round

Both the NFC and AFC Championship games are going to pit the best teams in the NFL against one another. On one side, the New England Patriots have seven players listed as "Questionable" and hope many of them are able to play on Sunday. The Pittsburgh Steelers have only three on their injury report and two are expected to be in the game and ready to go.

On the other side of things, the Green Bay Packers are looking at an injury report that has a number of starters listed and three wide receivers.

Things may not work out as well for them, but they are hopeful that extra rest will help by the time the game starts. The Atlanta Falcons are the healthiest team remaining in the NFL Championship chase right now, and it certainly seems as if they have the upper-hand.
