Falcons' Chandler Won't Start

The Atlanta Falcons will start backup quarterback Tony Graziani on Sunday at New Orleans as the team waits for Chris Chandler's injured hamstring to heal.

Chandler had a limited practice Thursday, but a team spokesman said Chandler likely will not be able to play against the Saints (1-2). He is listed as doubtful.

Graziani, who suffered a concussion last week against Baltimore, was taken off the injury list Thursday. The start Sunday will be his second in a row and third in the last four games.

Chandler injured his hamstring in a season-opening loss to Minnesota. After missing the next game, he aggravated the injury in the third game of the season against St. Louis.
