Falcons coach Mike Smith said Monday that RB Steven Jackson was having further tests done to evaluate the injury, which means we’ll be waiting until later in the week for an idea about whether or not he’ll play against Carolina.
Devonta Freeman was the most effective back in New Orleans, running five times for 36 yards and a touchdown and catching three passes for 48 more yards.
Early reports after the game said the injury wasn't all that serious and Jackson could be available for Week 17. For now, that remains up in the air. Jacquizz Rodgers got a bulk of the carries but Freeman has more fantasy potential.
