Ga. —Atlanta Falcons coach Mike Smith had plenty of concerns following his
teams late-night victory over Denver. Injuries. Running game. Then he had to add
Michael Turners off the field troubles to the list. The former Pro Bowl running
back was arrested for drunken driving and speeding early Tuesday morning. Smith
said he met with Turner after his release from jail and expressed the
organizations disappointment. The coach would not say if the Falcons (2-0) will
discipline him before they visit San Diego (2-0) on Sunday. Turner, 30, is
expected to attend the teams customary film sessions and position meetings and
to practice when players return Wednesday from their off day. “Oh, hell be in
here” Wednesday, Smith said. “No doubt.” Smith said the Falcons are
“disappointed when a player sheds a negative light on our organization. I cant
say any more than that.” There were other issues to address. The 5-foot-10,
244-pound Turner is just one of Smiths concerns. Defensively, the Falcons dont
know if nickel back Christopher Owens will be cleared to play. Owens sustained a
concussion against Denver. Smith said several other players will be listed on
the injury report this week. Three defensive starters—cornerback
Asante Samuel, nose tackle Peria Jerry and right end John Abraham—were
treated on the sideline during the game, but each returned to the field. Samuel
left in the first quarter with a jammed neck, but still finished with seven
tackles. Abraham and Jerry were hurt in the fourth quarter. With the team
leaving for San Diego on Friday, Smith plans to take it easy on his players
after a 3-hour, 27-minute game on Monday that was bogged down by a sideline
scrum and an inexperienced group of replacement officials. The Falcons won
27-21. “We want to get everybody recovered and as fresh as possible,” Smith
said. “That was a very physical football game last night that was way too long
and ended way too early in the morning.” The Falcons also need to get their
rushing attack on the right track. Turner has struggled on the field and is
averaging nearly 2 yards per attempt under his 4.5 career mark from 20004-10. Coby Fleener Jersey. . Smith refused to say
whether Turners issues off the field and anything to do with his struggles on
it. “You cant speculate on that at all,” Smith said. On Atlantas first
possession, Turner was stopped twice on first-and-goal from the 1 for no gain.
But on his next carry, he jumped over a pile of linemen on both teams to give
the Falcons an early touchdown lead. Still, the Falcons rushing attack, which
ranks 26th in the NFL, could face a stiff challenge from a San Diego defences
ranks first against the run. Turner gained just 27 yards on his first 16 carries
against the Broncos. On his final attempt, Turner broke off a 15-yard run that
allowed Atlanta to run out the clock and secure the victory. “We had a couple of
opportunities to get some first downs (earlier in the fourth quarter), but until
the last drive we didnt have any success,” quarterback Matt Ryan said. “That
last drive our guys really stepped up, our offensive line did a great job
allowing us to run the football. They opened up holes for Michael Turner.” The
Falcons pass defence earned a boost in confidence by intercepting Broncos
quarterback Peyton Manning three times in the first quarter. It marked the first
time Atlanta reaped the benefits from the off-season in replacing former
defensive co-ordinator Brian VanGorder with Mike Nolan. Though Nolan began the
game with a 1-6 record as a co-ordinator and head coach against Manning, the
Falcons excelled at disguising coverages and dropping safeties William Moore and
Thomas DeCoud deeper than the four-time NFL MVP seemed to expect. Moore, DeCoud
and reserve cornerback Robert McClain each picked off Manning. The pass rush
helped all night, finishing with three sacks and three additional quarterback
hits. “We did a very good job, and when the opportunity arose to make plays on
balls in the air, we created three interceptions and (we had) the one fumble
recovery,” Smith said. “Our third-down efficiency improved. I think we made some
strides.” Atlantas defence is still suspect against the run having allowed an
average of 135 yards and four touchdowns over the last two weeks. ’ ’ ’
