At the same time, Smith doesn’t expect Jackson to go through a full practice on Wednesday, so Jackson is likely to be limited upon returning. Falcons head coach Mike Smith said he expects running back Steven Jackson to return to practice this week from a hamstring injury. Any talk about Jackson’s chances of playing against the Cardinals is premature before he’s even officially made it back to the practice field, but the sooner the better for a Falcons team that’s been hit with injuries all over the offense. The Falcons snapped a three-game losing streak against the Buccaneers on Sunday without getting much from their running game. “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,” Smith said.
