Falcons | Steven Jackson may not play much in preseason

Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter indicated RB Steven Jackson may not receive much playing time during the preseason because he is an experienced runner but will allow head coach Mike Smith to make the decision. "Coach Smith will determine how many carries he gets, but I don't believe Steven Jackson needs a bunch of touches in the preseason. You can only run inside zone, outside zone so many times. He doesn't need to go out there and prove himself. Preseason is live tackling and getting your running backs beat up in the preseason, I don't see the benefit. Coach Smith will determine how many carries he gets," Koetter said.
