CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- There was no definitive news after Sunday’s game on Atlanta running back Michael Turner's injured ankle.
Turner“They still have to look it some more,’’ Turner said. “They don’t even know yet. We’ve got a long bus ride home.’’
Turner walked out of the Atlanta locker room wearing a boot on his right ankle. Atlanta coach Mike Smith said the team’s medical staff will take a closer look at Turner’s ankle Monday.
Team officials didn’t want to speculate on what might happen if it’s determined Turner will be out for a long period. But they indicated there is some hope Norwood could return to action soon.
“Not at this time,’’ general manager Thomas Dimitroff said, when asked if the Falcons were pursuing Johnson.
