The Atlanta Falcons found a very favorable replacement to Michael Turner this summer when they signed former St. Louis Ram, Steven Jackson.  Unfortunately it appears that Jackson may be on the shelf for the next two to four weeks.  According to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport, the thigh injury Jackson suffered in the Falcons’ 31-24 victory over the Rams this weekend is considered a “week to week” injury.More not-so-great news for the #Falcons? RB Steven Jackson (thigh) may miss 2-4 weeks, source says. Officially viewed as week-to-week though— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 17, 2013 Jackson managed 122 total yards in a Week 1 loss to the Saints and only finished with four total touches in Week 2.  While the 30-year old Jackson recovers, the Falcons will have to rely on Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling to fill in.  The 1-1 Falcons are already licking their wounds with starting wide receiver Roddy White battling an ankle injury suffered in the preseason.  It was also reported last week that Julio Jones would be questionable in Week 2 with a knee injury, yet he silenced any injury concern with an 11-reception, 182 yard performance.  Atlanta heads to Miami on Sunday to take on the 2-0 Dolphins.  The Falcons are going to need to overcome the injury to Jackson quickly as the New Orleans Saints find themselves atop the division at 2-0.  We’ll monitor Jackson’s status over the weeks and will keep you up to date as more develops.  Follow @TheNFLInjuryRpt Looking for fantasy football advice?
