Giants-Falcons Preview

ATLANTA (AP) -- One week after being promoted to the No. 2 spot on the Atlanta Falcons' depth chart, quarterback Byron Leftwich was listed as the third quarterback against the New York Giants on Monday night.

Leftwich turned his right ankle in practice on Thursday. He called the injury "minor" but did not practice on Friday, when he was listed as questionable.

He missed 10 games with Jacksonville last season with an injury to his left ankle.

Leftwich relieved starter Joey Harrington in the fourth quarter of the Falcons' loss at Tennessee last week, renewing speculation he might win the starting job. On Monday, coach Bobby Petrino said Leftwich had moved up to No. 2 on the depth chart.

Chris Redman was Harrington's backup against the Giants.

Atlanta's inactive list also included offensive tackle Todd Weiner, who had arthroscopic knee surgery on Wednesday and is expected to miss two to six weeks.

Linebacker Travis Williams, signed from the practice squad this week, was active.

New York's inactive list included receiver Steve Smith, who missed his fourth straight game since suffering a shoulder injury against Green Bay on Sept. 17. Smith had three catches against Dallas as the team's third receiver in its season opener on Sept. 9.

Anthony Wright was the Giants' backup quarterback for the fourth straight week, again leaving Jared Lorenzen as the third quarterback. Lorenzen was the backup the first two games before falling behind Wright on the depth chart.
