According the Atlanta Falcons website, Jacquizz Rodgers will be the starting running back today when the team faces off against the Miami Dolphins.

Well, it is official - Rodgers will be the first person to fill in for RB Steven Jackson during the 1-4 weeks he will be inactive due to injury. With his speed, Rodgers has the ability to create big plays on the ground and turn dump-offs and screens into long gains. Falcons fans everywhere hope that the offensive linemen give Rodgers more room to run than they did last week.
