The Atlanta Falcons won't have much help up front against the New York Jets on Monday night, but they will have plenty of receiving options, as both Roddy White and Julio Jones are active for Atlanta.

Joining them on the field will be cornerback Asante Samuel . The most critical missing piece is left tackle Sam Baker (and Steven Jackson , though he was expected to be out all along).

Along with Baker and Jackson, safeties Kemal Ishmael and Zeke Motta , linebacker Akeem Dent , guard Harland Gunn and tight end Chase Coffman are inactive for the Falcons.

The Jets will basically be at full strength minus the players expected to miss, including wideout Santonio Holmes .

Holmes, quarterback Brady Quinn , cornerback Dee Milliner , guard Will Campbell, tackles Ben Ijalana and Oday Aboushi and tight end Zach Sudfeld all make the list for New York.
