Turner Might Sit Out Again Against Bucs

November 27th, 2009

If you’ve been disconnected from Falcons football since last season, you’re probably wondering how the Bucs will stop Michael Turner on Sunday in Atlanta, considering far lesser running backs have torched them.

Well, the Bucs may not have to worry about him. Turner missed last Sunday’s game against the Giants — the Falcons still scored 31 points — and is still hurting on his sprained ankle, reports the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

“Yeah, it’s a game time decision,” Turner said. “I’m still working out some kinks and things like that. Just normal stuff that you’ve got to do coming off an ankle sprain.”

Jerious Norword, Atlanta’s other big threat in the backfield also missed the Giants game but is expected to return against the Bucs.

Joe hopes that in Raheem The Dream’s new defense, it actually matters who the opposition is rushing.
