Falcons | Steven Jackson might miss two more games

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) is expected to miss the Week 4 game against the New England Patriots, and he might miss another two to three weeks, according to a league source. The team has a bye in Week 6, so he might be held out until Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Oct. 20. Jackson suffered a setback in Week 2 against the St. Louis Rams, exiting that game immediately. His injury was originally called a thigh injury.

Fantasy Tip: With Jackson sidelined, RBs Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling will continue to fill in. The duo combined for 139 rushing yards in Week 3 against the Miami Dolphins.
