Falcons RB Michael Turner likely out for Sunday

New, comments

According to NFL.com the Falcons will be missing yet another major piece of their offense with their star RB Michael Turner likely to miss Sunday's game.

Falcons RB Michael Turner isn’t expected to play against the visiting Eagles on Sunday after re-aggravating an ankle sprain during last Sunday’s victory over the Buccaneers, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

Jason Snelling, who filled in for Turner in a loss to the Giants two weeks ago and had a game-high 76 rushing yards, is expected to start in Turner’s place. Jerious Norwood will back up Snelling.

It was announced earlier this week that QB Matt Ryan would also miss this weekend's game. Of course the Eagles aren't without their own injuries as they'll be without DeSean Jackson, Akeem Jordan, and of course Brian Westbrook.
