Falcons' Freeman, Cowboys' Lee leave with injuries

According to the report, Freeman will be re-evaluated this week but his absence could be extended to multiple games as a precaution after he suffered a concussion earlier this year during the preseason. The Falcons pulled a dizzy Freeman off the field, and then Freeman went to the locker room.

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman left the team's game against the Cowboys in the first quarter with a head injury. He has played in all nine games this season, but shoulder and knee issues have limited his practice participation and he has topped 75 rushing yards just twice all season.


The Falcons want to be extremely cautious with the running back, especially considering it's his second concussion in four months. He was replaced by Tevin Coleman, who will take over as the Falcons' starter if Freeman indeed misses time. Coleman is highly unlikely to be available though, as he is 87 percent owned in Yahoo! leagues and 85.7 percent owned in ESPN leagues.

Unfortunately, Freeman is all too familiar with concussion protocol.


Devonta Freeman will be missing in action until after Thanksgiving.
