Out Sunday

Ebiketie (forearm) is inactive Sunday against the Steelers, Michael Rothstein of ESPN.com reports.

Exits with injury

Ebiketie has left Sunday's game against Washington with an arm injury, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Ebiketie came into Sunday questionable with an arm injury, but it's not clear if this is related. The absence of the starting outside linebacker will certainly be a blow to the Falcons' defense. While he is out, Adetokunbo Ogundeji will be a candidate for extra snaps.

Will play Sunday

Ebiketie is active for Sunday's game against Washington, Tori McElhaney of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Ebiketie was deemed questionable due to an arm injury he suffered during Atlanta's Week 11 win over Chicago. However, despite being limited at all three practices during Week 12 prep, the rookie second-round pick will be available for Sunday's matchup. Over his last two games, Ebiketie has totaled nine tackles and 1.5 sacks across 69 defensive snaps.

Questionable for Week 12

Ebiketie (arm) is questionable for Sunday's matchup against the Commanders, Scott Bair of the Falcons' official site reports.

Analysis: Ebiketie suffered the injury during Atlanta's Week 11 matchup against the Bears, though he managed to play his usual allotment of around half the team's defensive snaps. He logged three limited practices leading up to Sunday's matchup against Washington, providing at least some hope that he'll be available to play. In 11 games this season, Ebiketie has posted 26 total tackles, 2.5 sacks and two passes defended.
