There was no definitive news after Sunday's game on Atlanta running back Michael Turner's injured ankle.
"They still have to look it some more,'' Turner said after the Falcons' 28-19 loss to the Panthers. "They don't even know yet. We've got a long bus ride home.''
Turner rolled the ankle when he was tackled at the end of a 10-yard run that gave him 111 yards on just nine carries. He took off his shoe and walked around some before heading inside.
The Associated Press reported that Turner suffered a sprain.
After the game, Turner walked out of the Atlanta locker room wearing a boot on his right ankle. Falcons coach Mike Smith said the team's medical staff will take a closer look at Turner's ankle Monday.
"I think we'll have a lot better idea when we get him back to Atlanta," Smith said.
Team officials didn't want to speculate on what might happen if it's determined Turner will be out for a long period. But they indicated there is some hope Norwood could return to action soon.
One scenario that's sure to be floated by fans is the possibility of the Falcons pursuing Larry Johnson, who was waived by the Kansas City Chiefs last week. But general manager Thomas Dimitroff downplayed that idea.
"Not at this time,'' Dimitroff said.
