Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman and left guard Andy Levitre have been ruled out for Monday night's game at Tampa Bay.

Wagner likely to play?
Seattle Seahawks linebackers Bobby Wagner, who didn't practice this week and is listed as questionable with a hamstring, believes he can play, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Wagner will test the injury ahead of the Seahawks' game against the Los Angeles Rams.
Wagner aggravated a hamstring strain early in the third quarter of the team's 30-24 loss to the Jaguars and did not return. He's also been unable to practice this week.
"He did some good stuff today in rehab, and he'll run tomorrow and we'll take it to game time," head coach Pete Carroll said on Friday. - Canadian Press

Clowney has been battling a knee injury and an illness while Hopkins has been battling a toe injury.
Target for Taylor?
