  • ATLANTA — The Atlanta Falcons have listed running back Steven Jackson as probable for Sunday's game at Arizona.
    Jackson, the NFL's active career-leading rusher, missed the past four games with a hamstring injury, but he participated fully in practice on Friday.
    Four-time Pro Bowl receiver Roddy White won't play for the second straight game because of ankle and hamstring injuries.
    Starting linebacker Stephen Nicholas (thigh) and reserve running back Jason Snelling (ankle) also are out.
    Starting left tackle Sam Baker (knee) and starting linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle) are questionable. Starting defensive tackle Corey Peters (shoulder), cornerback Robert Alford (ankle) and tight end Chase Coffman (ankle) are probable.
    The Falcons (2-4) snapped a three-game losing streak last week. Arizona (3-4) has lost two straight.
    Eagles
    Michael Vick has been listed as probable and is expected to start when the Philadelphia Eagles host the New York Giants on Sunday.
    Vick has missed the last two games after injury his left hamstring in the first half of a win at the Giants on Oct. 6. Backup Nick Foles, who sustained a concussion last week, was ruled out on Friday. Rookie Matt Barkley will be the No. 2 quarterback for the Eagles (3-4) against New York (1-6).
    Vick has thrown for 1,185 yards, five touchdowns and two interceptions, and has 307 yards rushing and two more scores.
    Jake Knott, a special teams player, also is out with a hamstring injury. Safety Patrick Chung (shoulder) and defensive end Cedric Thornton (knee) are questionable.
