As a result, Jackson received a thigh bruise. The bad news is that Rams linebacker Alec Ogletree hit Jackson just as Jackson was getting into the end zone, and Jackson ended up with a thigh bruise. That proved to be Jackson’s last play of the game because of a thigh injury. The good news for Falcons running back Steven Jackson is that he scored a touchdown in the first quarter of his first game against his old team, the Rams. Unfortunately, for Jackson, his day may have come to an end. The Falcons announced that Jackson is questionable to return. Even so, the Rams and Atlanta coach Mike Smith knew the Falcons’ running game wouldn’t be the same without him.
