Falcons' Turner hopes to return soon

Atlanta Journal-Constitution - [Full Article]

Falcons running back Michael Turner has been receiving continued treatment for his right high ankle sprain, but he remains uncertain how close he is to returning to action.

"I'm just taking it easy right now and hoping for the best," Turner said Monday.

The team's leading rushing, Turner didn't play against the New York Giants on Sunday, nor did he test the injury, suffered against Carolina on Nov.15, by running on the field before the game.

"We didn't get that far," Turner said.

Jason Snelling, who filled in for Turner, is likely to do so again Sunday against Tampa Bay. But Turner doesn't want to rule himself out yet.

"It's an ankle sprain," Turner said. "These injuries are kind of like funny. Some guys take six weeks to bounce back, but I don't think I'll take that long. I'm just trying to get back to my normal self again."
