Flowery Branch, GA (Sports Network) - Atlanta Falcons left tackle Sam Baker has been ruled out of Sunday night's game against the Miami Dolphins.

Baker didn't practice all week due to a knee/foot injury.

The Falcons will shift second-year player Lamar Holmes, who started the first two games at right tackle, to the left side and veteran lineman Jeremy Trueblood will be plugged in at right tackle.

The re-shaped offensive line is going up against a Dolphins defense that has tallied nine sacks. Rush specialist Cameron Wake has 2 1/2 of them.

Wide receivers Julio Jones (knee) and Roddy White (ankle), cornerback Asante Samuel (thigh) are listed as questionable. All three were limited in practice Friday.

Running back Steven Jackson has already been ruled out with a hamstring injury that will cost him three weeks of playing time.
