Shutdown Corner - NFL

It's a pregame routine that has been the norm in the NFL for decades: players stretch in lines on the field while coaches mill about and whisper words of encouragement.

Next week, Mike Smith(notes) might want to join his team to limber up his muscles. The Atlanta Falcons coach appeared to pull his hamstring while running down the sideline to call a timeout late in his team's overtime loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.


Smith is listed as probable for next week's game against the Arizona Cardinals.
