Falcons sign Stecker for backfield insurance

As expected, the Falcons signed tailback Aaron Stecker on Monday evening. Stecker will provide depth to the backfield with the loss of Michael Turner (high ankle sprain).

Stecker signed with Atlanta in late October and played in two games before being released this past weekend to create a roster spot to add depth at receiver.

If Turner can’t go Sunday against the New York Giants, Jason Snelling is expected to start. The Falcons also expect to get back Jerious Norwood, who has missed the past four games with a hip flexor.
