Ian Rapoport reports that sources have informed him that Falcons RB Steven Jackson could miss 2-4 weeks with a thigh injury.
Rapoport adds that Jackson’s injury is viewed as “week-to-week.“
Jackson, 30, signed a three-year contract worth $12 million that included $4 million guaranteed with the Falcons this offseason. He’s dealt with some injuries in recent years, but it’s bad time for the Falcons given that they’ve already lost a number of players on the defensive side of the ball.
Jacquizz Rodgers figures to take over as the team’s starting running back with Jackson out, but Jason Snelling will likely be worked into the mix as well.
We’ll have more on Jackson’s status moving forward as soon as the news is available.
