Falcons_Steven_Jackson_2013 [1]Don’t expect Steven Jackson to make a miraculous recovery over the next few days.

The Atlanta Falcons running back, who missed Sunday’s 27-23 loss to the Miami Dolphins while nursing a hamstring injury, is still expected to be sidelined another two to three weeks, according to a league source. That means Jackson is set to miss Sunday night’s showdown with the Patriots.

Jackson sustained the setback — originally called a thigh injury — in the first quarter of a Week 2 win over his former team, the Rams. He exited that game immediately after scoring an 8-yard touchdown off a pass from Matt Ryan.
