The Falcons will go one more game without running back Steven Jackson.

Atlanta coach Mike Smith confirmed today that Jackson is out for Monday night’s game against the Jets. That announcement was expected, as Jackson has been held out of practice all week with a hamstring injury.

The Falcons have their bye next week, and Jackson is expected to be healthy enough to play in Week Seven against the Buccaneers.

Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling are handling the work at running back while Jackson is out.
