Finally, there maybe some good news about injuries for the Falcons.
After Sam Baker was ruled out of Monday night's game, it wasn't going to surprise anyone if any of the other starters suddenly got injured in practice, or were ruled out of the Falcons' next game.
Hold on to your hats, Falcons fans, because Steven Jackson is coming back for Monday night's game against the Jets. Or he may be.
"We're not going to rule him out at this point in time," Smith said. "He's working hard to get back and we'll have to see how the rest of the week plays out."
Sounds like the chances are slim, but Jackson wasn't going to come back until week seven or so initially, so it sounds like he's at least making some progress in his recovery from his injury.
Getting him back would be a big boost to a Falcons running game that did well against Miami, but struggled against New England.
