Snelling on the field for the first three snaps...not a good sign for Turner's return :-t

I would guess that if he was going to come back he woulda been back on the first drive, but I'll be crossing my fingers :-o

I started him over Forte and I'm still 6 points short of feeling good about my decision...

Another drive that could have ended in a chip-shot Turner TD !+)

If Turner's out, who will be the better pickup??

Norwood or Snelling? I know Norwood's been out but he could be back next week. Is he a full-load guy or will Snelling cut into the majority of the yardage and/or TD's??

I'm not very familiar with the other Falcons RBs, but given what I've seen from them I would expect them to give Norwood a shot if he's healthy and revert to a RBBC if he's not running well between the tackles. Norwood usually has a good YPC, but I think a lot of that has always been bouncing it out to the outside.

Agreed if he's healthy, but he's kind of a fumble machine too...At this point though, everything about Turner is purely speculative, so I wouldn't jump to any conclusions just yet...

True. But in a competitive league, always have to grab the handcuff before someone else does.

IF Turner is out, it seems that Snelling would end up being the majority carry back, with Norwood doing his usual job as a changeup.

Snelling was just stuffed twice in the red zone...just needed to get 1 yard. From what I've seen Atlanta needs Turner back in a bad way.
