Turner, Nicholas and Grimes All Held Out of Practice

The Falcons held out a number of starters from Tuesday’s practice for a variety of reasons. The most notable on the list were running back Michael Turner, linebacker Stephen Nicholas and cornerback Brent Grimes.

Turner didn’t practice for the second straight day Tuesday because of a lingering groin issue that has limited his practice time in recent weeks. Turner, however, has yet to miss a game this season. Grimes (knee) worked out on the side with the trainers during Tuesday’s practice, but Smith said it’s doubtful he’ll be ready to play against the Jaguars.
