Steven Jackson to return to practice-- Mon Oct 21 3:30 pm --
Sidelined four games with hamstring injury
Steven Jackson is set to return to practice on Wednesday, HC Mike Smith said on Monday. Jackson has been out with a hamstring injury since Sept. 15. He suffered the injury in the first quarter against the St. Louis Rams in Week 2 of the season. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)
FF Today's Take:Atlanta may be engaging in some misinformation regarding Jackson, who reportedly had a setback last week. Jacquizz Rodgers has improved immensely over the last 1-2 seasons and has carved himself out a decent part-time role even when Jackson returns, but he cannot carry the ground game like the ex-Ram can. Once Jackson proves his health, expect him to resume a 20-touch role in the Falcons' shorthanded offense.
