In an expected move, Falcons coach Mike Smith has ruled out running back Steven Jackson for Monday night's game against the Jets.

Jackson hasn't played since Week 2 because of a hamstring injury and did not practice all week.

Earlier in the week, the Falcons (1-3) ruled out left tackle Sam Baker (knee) and linebacker Akeem Dent (sprained right ankle) for the game.
