Norwood, Snelling inactive for Falcons

Posted by ESPN.com’s Pat Yasinskas

NEW ORLEANS -- Just got word that injured Atlanta running backs Jerious Norwood and Jason Snelling will not be active for tonight’s game.

That leaves the Falcons with starting running back Michael Turner and Aaron Stecker, who was signed last week, as their only running backs.

The Falcons will activate Ovie Mughelli, who had been out with an injury, and Verron Haynes will be his backup. Haynes also could be used as a backup running back.

Also, defensive tackle Thomas Johnson will be inactive. Trey Lewis and Vance Walker are expected to share his duties.
