Falcons Replacing Jackson With Snelling

Posted By Sports Talk Florida News Desk On September 20, 2013 @ 2:06 PM In NFL | No Comments

Snelling_2013 [1]There’s a good reason Jason Snelling has stuck around for seven seasons with the Atlanta Falcons despite starting only five games in that span.

Snelling’s value is his versatility, a strength which again became a key for the injury ravaged Falcons this week. Fullback Bradie Ewing separated his left shoulder and was lost for the season. Running back Steven Jackson hurt his hamstring and was lost for at least one game.

Once again, it’s Snelling to the rescue.

Snelling may split time with Jacquizz Rodgers at running back and can also play fullback when Atlanta plays at Miami on Sunday.

In 2009, when Michael Turner missed time with an ankle injury, Snelling set career highs with 613 yards rushing and four touchdowns.
