NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora reports that Michael Turner’s groin injury is “mild,” and he’s only being held out of Sunday’s game because it’s a blowout.
Jason Snelling is also playing terrifically well in the 34-7 whipping, so it’s not like the Falcons are being tempted to reinsert their banged-up starter. La Canfora says the team has opted to “rest” Turner for the entire second half. Turner will finish the game with 75 yards on nine carries.
