Michael Turner was held out of practice Wednesday by the Atlanta Falcons medical staff due to issues with the running back's groin. Turner, currently 4th in the NFL in rushing, carried the ball 19 times for 60 yards in last week's 24-14 victory over the Minnesota. Its possible that Turner strained it but continued to play through the pain in Sunday's contest.
Here is the full injury report for the Atlanta Falcons as they prepare to face-off versus the Houston Texans:
