    Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Still in first phase of concussion protocol

    Freeman won't take part in practice Wednesday, as he remains in the first phase of the concussion protocol. Head coach Dan Quinn relayed Monday that Freeman had already received clearance to attend meetings, but Wednesday's development indicates otherwise. As the week progresses, the Falcons will tread carefully with their star running back due to the murky nature of concussions. While Freeman's availability could come down to a game-time call, the team kicks off at 1 PM ET on Sunday, affording his owners a chance to make necessary adjustments. If he's unable to play, Tevin Coleman will head Atlanta's backfield.

    Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Could be back for Week 12

    The early signs on Freeman (head) are positive, as his concussion symptoms were not particularly severe, Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports. Concussion are always serious, but it does appear Freeman avoided the worst of it. Falcons head coach Dan Quinn said his star running back is off to a good start in the NFL's concussion protocol, which likely means Freeman has already been cleared to participate in team meetings. Fleet-footed rookie Tevin Coleman struggled in Sunday's loss to the Colts, managing just 48 yards on 17 carries, without any receptions. The Falcons have a tough Week 12 matchup with the Vikings in a game that's key for the NFC wild-card picture.

    Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Scores against San Francisco

    Freeman caught eight passes off of 10 targets for 67 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss against the 49ers. He was held to 12 yards rushing on 12 carries. Freeman circled out of the backfield for a 17-yard catch and run in the closing moments of the first half to break a two-game scoreless streak. Freeman's 13 total touchdowns are comfortably the most in the league, four ahead of Bengals tight end Tyler Eifert. Not all is sunny in Atlanta, however. Freeman hasn't scored a rushing touchdown since Week 6 and was stymied for his lowest rushing total of the season and his first game with fewer than four yards per carry since Week 2. The fact that head coach Dan Quinn chose to kick a field goal with his team down by four and the ball a yard away from the end zone didn't necessarily ooze faith in Freeman.

    Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Tallies 131 total yards against Tampa Bay

    Freeman rushed for 88 yards on 21 carries in Sunday's lost to Tampa Bay. He added six catches for 43 yards on eight targets. Since taking over the lion's share of the carries for Atlanta in Week 3, Freeman has tallied over 100 yards of total offense in every game. He has been a fantasy darling ever since, leading the league in yards and touchdowns. From Week 3 through Week 6 Freeman scored nine touchdowns and was bound to cool off of that pace. That's exactly what has happened over the past two weeks, during which he has been held scoreless. Given the fact that Freeman has averaged 27 touches in those two games, it should be considered just a matter of time before he starts finding the end zone again.
