Flowery Branch, GA (Sports Network) - The Atlanta Falcons will be without the services of running back Steven Jackson once again for Sunday's matchup with the New England Patriots.

Jackson suffered a hamstring injury that knocked him out of a Sept. 15 game against St. Louis. The former Ram left his new team's 31-24 victory over his old one immediately after making an 8-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter.

Atlanta head coach Mike Smith later ruled Jackson out for what was last Sunday's 27-23 loss in Miami. Jacquizz Rodgers and Jason Snelling are again expected to take Jackson's reps.

Cornerback Asante Samuel, who returned to practice Friday and took limited reps, was listed as questionable with a thigh injury. Also questionable are tackle Sam Baker (foot/knee) and wideouts Julio Jones (knee) and Roddy White (ankle).
