falcon057 Posted September 22, 2010 Share Posted September 22, 2010 Falcons still in good shape at RB — 5:01 p.m.As first reported by FOXSports.com, Atlanta Falcons RB Jerious Norwood suffered a torn ACL during Sunday’s win over the Arizona Cardinals and will be placed on injured reserve.While the loss of the speedy Norwood shouldn’t be taken lightly, the Falcons have perhaps the best backup running back in the NFL in Jason Snelling.A pro personnel source said Snelling could easily start for at least a dozen teams because of his ability and versatility. He’s done a very solid job when being asked to fill in for starting RB Michael Turner over the past two seasons.The Falcons also have first-year RB Antone Smith on their 53-man roster, so depth at the position isn’t really a concern.— Adam Caplan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
