Practice report: Jackson still just watching

10/16/2013

FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. -- Atlanta Falcons running back Steven Jackson again took the practice field as a spectator on Wednesday while he continues to recover from a Week 2 hamstring injury.

Jackson's return remains a question mark. He previously stated he wouldn't return until 100 percent healthy, although Jackson expressed hope about returning shortly after this past weekend's bye.

Also not dressed for practice were left tackle Sam Baker (knee), tight end Chase Coffman (knee), and linebacker Akeem Dent (ankle).

Receiver Roddy White, who was spotted with his left hamstring wrapped during open locker room, was not on the field for the viewing portion of practice. He is still recovering from a high-ankle sprain as well.

The injury report listed Jackson, White, Baker, Coffman and Dent as all held out of practice.

Running back Jason Snelling had full participation in practice coming off a concussion.

In Tampa, guard Carl Nicks is out following foot surgery while running back Jeff Demps didn't participate due to a groin injury. Receiver Mike Williams (hamstring), guard Davin Joseph (knee), and defensive end Da'Quan Bowers (toe) were all limited.
