Williams To Play: Kyle Williams will play in today's game against Atlanta. He was the only player up in the air because of a back problem that creeped up on Friday.

Gragg is a bit of a surprise since they have got him a bit more involved in recent weeks but with everyone healthy there were hard choices for the inactive list.
