ASHBURN, Va. -- Washington Redskins linebacker Khary Campbell, the team's leading tackler on special teams, will miss Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons with a hamstring injury.

Campbell and safety Troy Vincent were the only players not to take part in a full practice Friday. Vincent missed last week's game with a sore hamstring, and is listed as questionable for Sunday.

Right tackle Jon Jansen practiced and is expected to play, despite a nagging calf injury that had him limping noticeably this week.

Coach Joe Gibbs wouldn't reveal his plans for the kicking situation on Sunday. Shaun Suisham was signed to the practice squad on Tuesday as a possible alternative to Nick Novak, who has been struggling with both field goals and kickoffs.

If Suisham plays, the Redskins would have to make a roster move to promote him to the 53-man squad.

"We'll take all the information and make the best decision you can," Gibbs said. "We definitely want to help ourselves on kickoffs, and we want to have a better percentage on field goals."
