Missed 27 days with hamstring injury The Falcons got some great news from Steven Jackson as he returned to practice on Monday. His return now puts him on track to be in the game September 7th, which is good news for those worried about the team's short-yardage struggles. What is less clear is whether he'll be ready for a full workload in that game, but the Falcons have suggested all along they anticipated he'd be back in action against the Saints. (Yahoo) FF Today's Take: Keep this recovery time in mind for Jackson, who was a top-15 back over the final five weeks of last...

Steven Jackson to play in preseason finale

Falcons RB looks to put hamstring injury behind him RB Steven Jackson is suited up and in uniform. Looks like he's playing (in the preseason finale versus Jacksonville). (Jay Adams on Twitter) FF Today's Take: It is highly doubtful the 31-year-old will see more than a handful of snaps and is probably just trying to do what he can to put his mind at ease for the season opener against New Orleans next Sunday. His age and history of soft-tissue injuries are the primary reasons why he has slipped into the middle rounds in most fantasy drafts, but he has high-end RB2 potential in...

Falcons Preseason Injury Report: Asamoah Not Practicing, Steven Jackson Returns

Good news, bad news, as the Earth continues to spin. The Falcons got some great news from the likes of Steven Jackson and Gabe Carimi today, but as is so often the case, our enthusiasm must be tempered by uncertain tidings.

Devonta Freeman flashing in Falcons' camp

Steven Jackson sidelined by hamstring injury Devonta Freeman will have plenty of opportunity to prove his value immediately. A left hamstring injury is likely to sideline veteran starter Steven Jackson for the bulk of the preseason, allowing Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers to receive more backfield reps in training camp and exhibition games. Freeman already has shown flashes of his ability to be an every-down back. (ESPN) FF Today's Take: Jackson suffered a left hamstring injury - the same one that cost him four games last year - on Tuesday. HC Mike Smith didn't offer much of a...

With Steven Jackson out until the season opener, it's Devonta Freeman's time to shine

Fact: Devonta Freeman once put out a fire with a gallon of gasoline With Steven Jackson's hamstring injury, the door appears to be wide open for Devonta Freeman. As Dave pointed out earlier today, it's very possible that he will take the majority of the preseason snaps at running back. And for what it's worth, he's already getting rave reviews from Matt Ryan (credit goes to the AJC for the quote). "He's done a nice job. He's got a lot to learn. Every rookie has a lot on their plate. But specifically, that running back position is tough because you're asked to do so much in the run game....

Steven Jackson Injury: RB Hurts Hamstring, Expected Back For Season Opener

The first injury of Falcons training camp strikes, and it's a hamstring issue for Steven Jackson. We now know why Steven Jackson missed practice today, as he apparently suffered a left hamstring injury in Monday's first padded practice. Steven Jackson injured, but expected to be ready for Week 1: http://t.co/O9Tdt7VEPB #aftc14 — Jay Adams (@FalconsJAdams) July 29, 2014 This is an unfortunate blow for Jackson, who was trying to come back healthy and rejuvenated after an injury-marred, frustrating 2013 season that saw him rush for a career-low 543 yards and 3.5 yards per carry. The...

Falcons RB Steven Jackson out with hamstring injury

Jackson injured his hamstring during training camp on Monday, according to Falcons digital media manager Jay Adams via Twitter. Adams says that it was not the same hamstring that kept Jackson out of several games in the 2013 season. The 31-year-old Jackson has amassed 2,395 carries over his nine-year career. In 2013, his first year in Atlanta, Jackson tallied 543 rushing yards on 157 carries, for a 3.5 YPC average. Adams says that Jackson will be in the Falcons lineup for Week 1. FANTASY ANALYSIS: This news puts a damper on the theory that Jackson was primed for a comeback season. While...

Steven Jackson the latest to be hamstrung

Will be ready for Week 1 Falcons running back Steven Jackson suffered a right hamstring injury and did not participate in practice on Tuesday. "Steven injured his hamstring yesterday," Smith said. "We kept him out. We don't think it's going to be real significant. He will be ready for the first game." (Atlanta Journal Constitution) FF Today's Take: The fact that Smith mentioned Jackson would be ready for the first game gives the impression that the Falcons running back is going to miss a significant amount of time this preseason. This is not the same hamstring that Jackson...
