The Atlanta Falcons have just one stop left on their preseason schedule -- a date with the Jacksonville Jaguars on Thursday. While starters played extensively in the team's last game against the Miami Dolphins, it should be mostly backups for the preseason finale.
Game Time: 6:30 PM, EST
TV Coverage: CBS (Atlanta)
Radio: 790 The Zone AM (Atlanta)
Players To Watch: Michael Turner, Peria Jerry, Jason Snelling
It's unclear how much Turner will actually play in the team's final preseason game, but the running back needs a good showing to ward off some of the doubters. Whispers around the league say that Turner has lost a step and Jacquizz Rodgers will be the eventual starter, but it's still Turner's job for now.
On Sunday, the Falcons placed defensive tackle Corey Peters on the PUP list. Taking his place on the defensive front will be Peria Jerry. After appearing to be a bust for most of his career, the team believes that Jerry can be a factor this season.
Snelling has battled a lower leg injury for most of the preseason, hampering him from getting a lot of work in Dirk Koetter's new offense. Any reps Snelling can get on Thursday will help him learn the new scheme.
