Steven Jackson should be ready for Week 1 of the 2014 NFL season. (Kevin C. Cox)
Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson is out indefinitely with a hamstring injury, head coach Mike Smith said.
The good news is Jackson should be available for Week 1 of the regular season. Also, it’s apparently not the same hamstring Jackson injured last season.
The bad news is Jackson, at 31 years old, is injured again.
With linebacker Sean Weatherspoon out for the season and now this, it’s not the greatest of starts to the season.
And more silver lining: the Falcons will get a closer look at rookie Devonta Freeman.
Here’s to a speedy recovery for Jackson.
