Turner out for Falcons, Pierce inactive for Giants
Atlanta Falcons running backs Michael Turner and Jerious Norwood are inactive for the team's game against the New York Giants. Turner, fourth in the NFC in rushing, suffered a high ankle sprain last week against Carolina. Norwood is missing his fifth straight game with a hip flexor. Jason Snelling is starting at running back for Atlanta. Wide receiver Roddy White, questionable with a sprained knee, is active. As expected, the Giants are without linebacker Antonio Pierce, out indefinitely with a bulging disk in his neck. Chase Blackburn is starting in his place. Cornerback Aaron Ross is active for the first time after missing the first nine games with a severe hamstring strain. Cornerback Kevin Dockery is inactive.
