And somewhere Larry Johnson is smiling.
On the same day that Bengals running back Cedric Benson left his team’s win in Pittsburgh with a hip injury, the Falcons lost running back Michael Turner to an ankle injury that, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, may be serious.
Turner will have an MRI on Monday to determine the severity of the ankle injury. Turner could miss several weeks if he has a high ankle sprain, which affects the ligaments that attach the ankle to the leg bones.
Given the Falcons’ experiences with Mike Vick, they might not be inclined to sniff around Johnson.
For the Bengals, hey, as long as Johnson didn’t kill a judge he’s eligible to join the effort.
