Last year, Atlanta Falcons offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter limited the usage of veteran running back Michael Turner during preseason action to keep him fresher for the regular season. Per Daniel Cox of AtlantaFalcons.com, Turner only had 18 carries in the first three exhibition games and skipped the final preseason contest. Even though Turner's replacement, Steven Jackson, is just starting his tenure with the team, it sounds like Koetter will take a similar approach to Jackson's preseason workload.
