News: Jackson (hamstring) returned to practice Monday, The Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports. Impact: Jackson has been sidelined since injuring his right hamstring on July 29. However, following an increase in his rehab work last week, the veteran running back was finally able to rejoin his teammates for the final week of preseason practice. Although Falcons coach Mike Smith hasn't ruled Jackson out for Thursday's last exhibition outing, it wouldn't be surprising if the 31-year-old took advantage of another rest opportunity. No matter, Jackson figures to be ready by Atlanta's Week 1 opener, which could result in him sharing touches with Jacquizz Rodgers and rookie Devonta Freeman out of the Falcons' backfield.(RotoWire, )
