FLOWERY BRANCH – Starting strong safety Erik Coleman, who has not practiced all week after suffering a left knee injury against Pittsburgh, was listed as questionable on the team’s injury on Friday.
Wide receiver Michael Jenkins, who has a shoulder injury, was declared out for the second week in a row.
If Coleman is unable to play, second-year safety William Moore would take over at strong safety.
“He’s learning the game,” defensive coordinator Brian VanGorder said.
Moore has battled injuries since being selected in the second round of the 2009 draft. He missed most of last season with hamstring and knee injuries.
It would be his first NFL start.
“I think his big challenge as a young player, being out there the first time in a starting situation is just going to be consistency,” VanGorder said. “He’s a physical player who has great speed. So you are going to see those kind of flashes from him. But consistency and doing his job in a good fundamental way is going to be the challenge.”
Harry Douglas will continue to start for Jenkins. He finished with three catches for 39 yards last week against Pittsburgh.
Right tackle Tyson Clabo (ankle), center Joe Hawley (hip), cornerback Christopher Owens (knee), cornerback Dunta Robinson (ankle) and cornerback Brian Williams (hamstring) were all listed on the injury report and declared probable for Sunday’s game.
