Jackson, who hold the St. Louis Rams' franchise record for rushing yards, was supposed to be the missing piece for the Falcons, who were 13-3 and the NFC's top seed in 2012. Instead, Jackson has simply gone missing. In fairness, he's been bothered by hamstring and toe injuries, but even when relatively healthy he hasn't been the same player that rushed for more than 1,000 yards in eight consecutive seasons.
