Steven Jackson may miss 2-4 weeks-- Tue Sep 17 12:10 pm --
Falcons RB dealing with quad injury
A person informed of the injury tells NFL Media insider's Ian Rapoport that Steven Jackson might miss 2-4 weeks with a thigh injury. The 30-year-old is officially viewed as "week-to-week." With Jackson out, Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling will likely split backfield duties. (NFL.com)
FF Today's Take:"Week to week" is a good indication that Jackson is all but out for Week 3 and likely longer. The Falcons face the Dolphins, Patriots and Jets before having a bye in Week 6. In the meantime a RBBC will be in place with Rodgers and Snelling. Rodgers will be slightly higher value in PPR leagues but neither back is going to be better than a flex-play given the pass-first offensive philosophy.
