Falcons' Ito Smith: Set for backup job again
Smith is set to handle the No. 2 running back job in Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure reports.
Tevin Coleman will get his fourth start of the season with Devonta Freeman (foot, groin) once again ruled out. Smith averaged just 8.3 touches and 45.7 scrimmage yards in the previous three games Freeman missed, but the rookie does have a two-game touchdown streak heading into a favorable matchup with the struggling Bucs defense. "The Judge" can become the first rookie in Falcons franchise history to record a rushing touchdown in three straight games with a score against Tampa Bay on Sunday.
