Falcons | Steven Jackson misses practice

Atlanta Falcons RB Steven Jackson (hamstring) did not practice Thursday, Oct. 3. Jackson observed practice in shorts and hasn't practiced since injuring his hamstring in Week 2. However, head coach Mike Smith is optimistic about Jackson, but he won't return to action until he's 100 percent healthy. "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."

Fantasy Tip: We don't expect S-Jax to be back this weekend, given the fact that Atlanta has their bye in Week 6. It's very realistic for Jackson to return in Week 7, making Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling very short-term values.
