The Atlanta Journal-Constitution is reporting that Falcons RB Jason Snelling has returned to practice Monday. Snelling has been sidelined since early August with an injury the team has been mysteriously quiet about, only calling it a "lower right leg injury," but it was apparently serious enough he didn't feel comfortable playing in the preseason finale: "I wasn't completely ready to go. There is a lot of stuff that goes into rehabbing after being out that long."
Fantasy Impact: The Falcons were looking to expand Snelling's role in the offense and reduce the workload on starter Michael Turner, but with almost no reps in training camp or preseason, he's way behind Turner and Jacquizz Rodgers on the depth chart, and will have next to no fantasy value in Week 1. At best, he might be worth a waiver claim in PPR leagues.
