Falcons Suddenly Short of Tailbacks

The Atlanta Falcons potentially are facing a severe shortage at running back this week.

Tailbacks Warrick Dunn and Jerious Norwood got hurt during Sunday's triumph over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Dunn suffered a calf injury, and Norwood hurt his knee.

It's not clear if either will be available for Saturday night's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Since their QB likes to run so much, maybe he can take the RB spot and the Falcons can insert a real passer.

Why don't the Skins trade them T.J. Duckett? After all, not having played that much for Washington, he'll be fresh!

And the Skins could throw in a 3d round pick also.
