Steven Jackson out until Week 7 with hamstring issue?


Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson could be out until Week 7 with a hamstring issue.

While Jackson has been listed as having a thigh issue ESPN’s Vaughn McClure says the injury is actually the 30-year-old’s hamstring.

Whatever the case, The Falcons seem certain to be without Jackson in Week 4 against New England.

There is growing belief around the NFL that Jackson will be out until Week 7 against Tampa Bay. The Falcons have a bye in Week 6.
