Atlanta Falcons veteran running back Steven Jackson is getting closer to his return from a hamstring injury.
Falcons coach Mike Smith said that Jackson has accelerated his rehab schedule and may be able to practice soon.
Smith didn't close the door on Jackson possibly playing in the final preseason game, but is confident he'll definitely be ready for the season-opener
“We are encouraged by what he has done over on that side with athletic performance,” Smith said. “It’s going to depend on the individual in terms of how he feels and once the doctor gives him the clear to go, then he will go.”
