Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson injured his left hamstring Monday.
He's expected back in time for the season-opener against the New Orleans Saints.
“I don’t think it’s going to be anything that’s going to be real significant," Falcons coach Mike Smith said. "He will be ready for the first game."
Last season, Jackson was sideliend with hamstring and toe injuries for four games.
Jackson, 31, rushed for just 543 yards last season.
The Falcons will have to go with rookie Devonta Freeman and Jacquizz Rodgers in Jackson's absence.
