Falcons coach Mike Smith indicated Monday that the status of Jerious Norwood (knee) is uncertain going forward.

"I know that everybody is concerned about Jerious," said Smith. "He has had some evaluation this morning. We are going to continue to evaluate it and we hope to have more information on Wednesday." It sounds like Norwood may be going for a second opinion. There are rumors he has a torn ACL.

So do you guys think we will pick someone up. I don't think I trust Antonie Smith. If Marshawn Lynch could stay out of trouble he would be a nice pick up. I doubt he could though.

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, "it still doesn't sound like Buffalo is in any mood or hurry to trade RB Marshawn Lynch."

Trade speculation continues to run rampant around Lynch, who appeared to be showcased against the Packers in Week 2. But the Bills have had months to make a deal and have stood pat every time. Perhaps they're just trying to maintain leverage in trade talks, but for now we have to operate under the assumption that a trade is not close.

Ugh. I hate it too. Jerious is a stand-up guy, and a he11 of an athlete. He has always been one of my favorites since he was drafted, and you can't deny he was one of the best "x-factors" in the league.

You are almost certainly right about him being done in ATL. Poor Jerious, I hate it for him.

I got to disagree with you there. I can see us letting him test some waters this off season but if he wants to come back he will be in competition with a guy we draft or pick up via UDFA. Norwood will get another chance to make his mark next season. That's if he even done for the season which none of us know for a fact. There is a reason why smith or nance didn't get his job because Jrock was better. You all can jump off his boat before it goes down but not me if he is healthy I want him on my/this team! I got your back Norwood!

Nobody is arguing that Norwood isn't Great when he is healthy, but they are simply pointing out he can't stay healthy. IF this was his first year of injuries then nobody would be saying much, BUT this is the 3rd straight year with problems and if the info from Rotoworld is correct and it is an ACl, then you have to seriously step back and reevaluate his actual worth. We let go a promising rookie in Nance just to have Norwood go do AGAIN to injury. How good is a player that only gives you 2-10 games a year in a 16 game season?

For the record, I"m a HUGE Norwood fan--the guy's a living ESPN highlight waiting to happen.

The only problem is we only get to see brief glimpses of his talent because he's always getting dinged up, missing pieces of games and entire games.

I think that most of us who really like the guy were hoping that he'd use this season as a launching pad to showcase his considerable talent, earning increased number of touches each game, and avoiding the injury lists.

Hate to say it but....the guy is made of glass and hasn't yet demonstrated he can take the physical demands of the NFL on a weekly basis. The unfortunate reality is this:

The NFL is a business and building a winning team takes a large number of complimentary pieces that must work together like a well oiled machine. Earning a playoff spot, winning a division/conference title and a Super Bowl takes a full roster of players who can be counted upon to be healthy and ready for action each week. Jerious cannot be a long term piece of the equation for us when he's not in the game, and I fear his days as a Falcon may be numbered.

I have to agree. If he's done this year they wont bring him back. And I wish it could be a big year for Norwood. His speed is a great compliment. Well there goes another one of TD's picks that is hurt all the time. Oh, my bad, that one isn't on TD.

I'm hoping for the best but it looked like a blow out to me. The carpet monster got him when he tried to make a move. Looked very ACLish to me.

I hope I'm wrong but that might have been the last Falcon play we'll ever see from Wildwood.

I know he never reached his full potential here but he turned in a boat load of Falcon plays. I really appreciated it bro. Good luck. Don't give up.

Yes, that new fake grass with the rubber beads has now taken out 2 players for the birds. Meier and Norwood. Time to go retractable roof and grow real grass IMHO.

Injury Prone Body.

I was "done" w/ Jerious Norwood last year - injuries every year.....I know he cannot help it and football is a "rough & tumble" sport but once a player shows that he cannot stay healthy year in and year out for 3-4 years - then its time to call it for it is - talent or not - if you cannot stay healthy, the team is better off w/ a player that can stay healthy - even if less talented.

I'm sure Colts fans are ready for Bob Sanders to take his ball and go home as well. Dude cannot stay healthy.

Its time for Falcons to move on from Jerious Norwood. I liked him and his talent but....it's time.

The Talent is there, but.... we can all agree that Norwood can't stay healthy. I agree with you man tough brake for Norwood. :(

Roto is know for injecting opinion where it is not warranted. I can't find so much as a peep on the ACL rumor anywhere other than there and on this board. I only saw the game live so I did't see it in slo mo on TV but then again I'm not a doctor who diagnoses injuries by use of television.

Step away from the panic button for now. The good news is it sounds like Turner will be back in and Snelling fills in very nicely. Also don't forget about Antoine who looked pretty speedy getting around the edge for a change of pace back.

Direct Quotes from coach Mike Smith's press conference on Monday, Sept. 20, regarding Jerious Norwood, from

On the injury update to RB Jerious Norwood and a report that he tore his ACL:

“We’ll really give the full injury report on Wednesday. I know everybody’s concerned about Jerious. Jerious has had some evaluation this morning and we’re going to continue to evaluate it. Hopefully we’ll have a lot more information on Wednesday. I don’t where that report is coming from. Again, we’ve had testing done and evaluation done this morning and we’re going to continue to evaluate it. If it indeed is the case, then we would of course announce that. Again, that will probably come on Wednesday when we give our injury report.”

On whether he has given any thought to bringing in a veteran running back pending the severity of the injuries to RB’s Jerious Norwood and Michael Turner:

“Of course, each and every week the dynamics of your roster changes. You’ve got to try to put the strongest roster together and if we feel like because of the health of our running back situation that we need to add a player, we definitely would consider that. Again, I think yesterday we were in a situation where RB Jason Snelling had to step up and he did some really good things. We also have a contingency plan that we can work FB Ovie Mughelli in the running back position and he did that as well yesterday. I thought we got to our contingency plan and we executed it very well.”On when and if he would consider releasing Jerious Norwood due to his history of injuries:

“Unfortunately, Jerious has had some bumps and bruises and some missed time since we’ve been here, but he is a very talented football player and he’s been a guy that’s contributed to the success that we’ve had. You like the speed of him as a running back and as a specialist and he’s been able to contribute for us the past two years, but there’s always a sense of frustration anytime you don’t have your best players out there on the field, not necessarily directed towards Jerious or anyone else, but anytime you don’t have your best players out there that you feel like give you the best chance to win it is frustrating.”

I know the answer to that one. He's worth 2%, which is no value to a 16+ game season.
