NFC South roundup: Abraham wants to regain sack lead


Posted by ESPN.com's Pat Yasinskas

A look at the morning headlines around the NFC South.

FALCONS

Defensive end John Abraham hopes to regain his position as the NFL's sack leader after losing it during the bye week.

PANTHERS

For about the 256th time since last year, defensive end Julius Peppers talked about being more of a leader. The difference is, this time, it's actually showing on the field.

BUCCANEERS

Rookie return man Dexter Jackson, who some fans in Tampa say has looked soft, disputed that perception. Coach Jon Gruden said he continues to evaluate the return game, but made it a point to say the Bucs aren't giving up on Jackson. Still don't be surprised if someone else is handling returns Sunday against the Cowboys.
