As feared, Falcons running back Michael Turner has a high ankle sprain.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX, however, the Falcons are optimistic that Turner won’t be out as long as usual, for such an injury.
Typically, a high-ankle sprain entails a recovery time of 4-6 weeks.
Steve Wyche of NFL.com has reported that the Falcons expect Turner to miss at least one game, and that the Falcons will re-sign running back Aaron Stecker, who was bounced Saturday as the Falcons added an extra wideout.
The 5-4 Falcons visit the 5-4 Giants on Sunday at the Meadowlands.
