Michael Turner released for failed physical
Falcons running back Michael Turner was officially released because of a failed physical, which was listed in the league transactions on Friday.
Turner aggravated an ankle injury in the NFC championship game. He limped off the field in the third quarter and did not return. The team did not announce any additional information about the injury or if he required offseason surgery.
Turner played in all 18 games last season and rushed for 800 yards on 222 carries during the regular season. He had a groin surgery after the 2011 season.
