Steven Jackson Injury: Running Back Has Thigh Bruise, Joined By Cliff Matthews

USA TODAY Sports

Jackson and reserve lineman Cliff Matthews are out.

Steven Jackson has left the Falcons-Rams game with a thigh injury. He's questionable to return at this point.

Jacquizz Rodgers is in the game. The Falcons have now lost three players today to one injury or another. Jackson had managed 0 yards on three carries, but he did score on a Matt Ryan pass. Let's hope he's back in soon.

Also, Cliff Matthews has been carted off the field for the Falcons. The valuable reserve lineman came into the game with a pre-existing neck injury that he may have aggravated going against the Rams.

It might be a stinger, and certainly we hope it's nothing more serious. We'll keep you updated.
