Falcons RB Jacquizz Rodgers Could Take Lead
Posted By Sports Talk Florida On December 7, 2012 @ 9:59 am In NFL | No Comments
Rodgers has seen a steady increase in carries and has been the team’s leading rusher in two of the last four games. Still, he has remained the clear backup to Turner, who has had more carries than Rodgers in each of Atlanta’s 12 games.
That could change Sunday at Carolina.
Turner was limited in practice on Thursday for the second straight day with a left elbow injury. He had a wrap on the elbow, which he hurt in the Falcons’ win over New Orleans on Nov. 29.
Coach Mike Smith expects Turner will play against the Panthers, but said Rodgers has proved he can be the lead back if needed.
