Mike Smith: 'Steven Jackson will return to practice'

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith reveals that running back Steven Jackson will return to practice this week after recovering from a hamstring injury.

Atlanta Falcons head coach Mike Smith has revealed that running back Steven Jackson will return to practice this week.

Jackson has been out of action since injuring his hamstring in the Falcons' win over the St Louis Rams in week two of the season.

Smith told reporters: "This is all based on what the doctor will say in terms of how much he'll participate in practice as we go through the week, but when we left out of here on Friday, everything was very good in terms of testing and the opportunity to return to play.

"We are anticipating to get him in and see how he handles it. You've got to go in and take it one day at a time when you're coming back from an injury."

The Falcons are 2-4 in their season following their win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
