Mark Teixeira (finger) is not in the Yankees' starting lineup on Saturday.
Teixeira continues to deal with a sore finger which actually has stitches in it, so consider him day-to-day still but expect him to miss another game or two. If he doesn't, well then that's a bonus, but it does sound like he'll be out a little longer. Chase Headley remains at first base Saturday.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Devin Hester (toe) has been cleared to return from injury in Week 13.
Hester has been on short-term IR all year with the toe injury and has finally been cleared to return. Considering the offensive struggles for the Falcons, he may be used as more than just a return man. There's been little help opposite Julio Jones so perhaps Hester will get a crack at some extra snaps. He certainly couldn't do worse than what the team has there right now. Of course, Matt Ryan still has to wake up as well. Analysis: Howard Bender
