Steven Jackson is back. The Falcons running back has been out since week 2 after injuring himself against his former team, the St. Louis Rams.
Jackson has been reportedly taking the majority of the snaps in practice with the first team and looks ready to be near full speed this week against the Cardinals.
Roddy White will be out this week. The receiver, who saw his 133 consecutive game streak snapped after missing last week's game against Tampa Bay, will now be out for a second straight game.
Jason Snelling will also be out, so the Falcons will have a two headed attack with Jackson back and second running back Jacquizz Rodgers, who was a huge asset out of the backfield last week when it came to the passing game.
Stephen Nicholas, who was thrust back into the starting role after the injuries to Sean Weatherspoon and Akeem Dent earlier in the season, will also miss Sunday's game. It's unclear as to who will take his place.
Desmond Trufant, who was injured in last week's game, is not on the injury report, so it appears that he will be ready to roll come Sunday.
