News: Jackson (illness) had 13 carries for 34 rushing yards and a touchdown, as well as two catches on three targets for 17 receiving yards Sunday against the Browns. Impact: Jackson's touchdown came on a one-yard run in the fourth quarter, his third score in the last four games. While he has yet to reach 85 rushing yards in a game this season, he's the clear top runner in Atlanta who will get a majority of the looks from in close. However, things figure to be much harder in Week 13 against the Cardinals, who are allowing the third-fewest rushing yards per game this season.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson (illness) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Browns. Impact: Although being limited to 41 yards on 17 carries by Carolina last weekend, Jackson will take aim a Cleveland run defense that is allowing an average of 142.1 rushing yards per game. Only the Titans and Giants are allowing more.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson (illness) is listed as probable for Sunday's game against the Browns, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: Jackson's illness kept him out of Thursday's practice but is not expected to hold him back Sunday. Although he was largely bottled up by Carolina last week, he should find many more opportunities for success against Cleveland's 30th-ranked run defense, which got steamrolled by the Texans' running backs last week despite Arian Foster's absence.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson (illness) returned to practice Friday, ESPN's Vaughn McClure reports. Impact: As expected, Jackson's illness did not keep him out for long, and we anticipate he will receive a "probable" designation for Sunday's game against the Browns when the Falcons release their official injury report after practice.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson missed Thursday's practice due to an illness, Vaughn McClure of reports. Impact: A bug is currently moving about the Falcons' roster, as Jackson joins Julio Jones on the injury report with an illness. Jackson has handled the bulk of the RB workload of late, notching 51 carries for 182 yards and two touchdowns over the last three contests. If he's unable to fend off the malady in time for Sunday's game against the Browns, rookie Davonta Freeman is the logical option to pick up carries in Jackson's stead.(RotoWire, )

News: Jackson had 17 carries for 41 yards and caught 2-of-3 targets for six yards in Sunday's 19-17 win at Carolina. Impact: Jackson once again led the Falcons in rushing, though it was a very unimpressive performance this week. He was coming off of his two most productive games of the season, and since the Panthers haven't been great against the rush this season, it was certainly a very disappointing outcome. Next week, Jackson will face a Browns' defense that hasn't been able to stop the run this year.(RotoWire, )
