Jacquizz Rodgers, Antone Smith work ahead of Devonta Freeman in preseason opener
by Igor Mello |

With Steven Jackson sidelined, Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers and Antone Smith both worked ahead of rookie runner Devonta Freeman during Friday's preseason opener against Miami.

Rodgers got the start and made his impact felt on the opening drive, which ended on a 2-yard touchdown run. He rushed for 20 yards and a touchdown on seven carries, averaging 2.9 yards per carry. He was not targeted in the passing game.

Antone Smith broke free for a 76-yard touchdown in the second series with the second-team offense, but had the play called back because of a holding penalty. He finished with three carries for 5 yards and one catch for 5 yards.

Freeman made his first appearance early in the second quarter and did not disappoint. The rookie totaled 107 yards of offense in his first preseason game. He rushed for 50 yards on 10 carries and caught one of his two targeted passes for 57 yards.

Jacquizz Rodgers not concerned about his role
by Larry Hartstein |

Falcons running back Jacquizz Rodgers figures to lose time to rookie runner Devonta Freeman, especially opportunities to catch passes out of the backfield. Rodgers told he's not worried about being overlooked.

"There are no concerns," Rodgers said. "You've got to come and compete every year. It just makes the group better, bringing more guys. It makes everybody work harder at practice. We're going to work collectively. We're going to learn from each other. And we're going to make each other better each and every day."

Rodgers caught 52 passes and scored four touchdowns last season, two as a receiver. He endorsed the drafting of Freeman.

"He's a good running back," Rodgers said. "Comes from a winning program. Fast guy: a guy that's willing to learn, willing to learn from the older guys. He's a good piece to our puzzle in the backfield."

'No sweeping changes' to Falcons run game
by Dave Richard | Senior Fantasy Writer

The Falcons' official team website reports that there will be "no sweeping changes" to the team's run game after finishing 32nd in the league in rush yards in 2013. Offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter said there wouldn't be an uptick or a downswing in the number of run plays he calls. Instead, he's expecting new players on the O-line and in the backfield to mesh with the old strategy. 

"We're going to be a better running football team, starting with the offensive line and progressing throughout the team," Koetter said. "We'll be more committed to it."

Steven Jackson is expected to be the starter with rookie Devonta Freeman and vet Jacquizz Rodgers behind him. After having a down year that included missing time with an injury, he says he'll be ready. 

"I've always prided myself on being able to go stronger through the game," he said. "With having favorable boxes, which I anticipate, I think we'll be quite OK."
