Turner sprains ankle

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) Atlanta Falcons running back Michael Turner has gone to the locker room after spraining his right ankle against Carolina.

Turner rolled the ankle when he was tackled at the end of a 10-yard run that gave him 111 yards on just nine carries. He took off his shoe and walked around some before heading inside.

The Falcons said his return was questionable.

The injury left Atlanta short-handed in the backfield. Backup Jerious Norwood was inactive with a hip injury and Aaron Stecker was released Saturday. Jason Snelling ran for a 1-yard TD after Turner left.
