Falcons RB Devonta Freeman getting closer to 100 percent
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman, who has been dealing with a hamstring injury, was an active participant at practice Monday, an encouraging sign for a player who was thought to be the team's starter, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Freeman hurt his hamstring on Aug. 6 and has not played in any of the team's preseason contests. It's not clear if Freeman will play in the team's final game Thursday. 

"He ran it well today," Falcons coach Dan Quinn said. "Limited reps, but it was awesome to see him."

Quinn: Devonta Freeman, Tevin Coleman closer to game action
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Falcons coach Dan Quinn continues to take a cautious approach with running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman, who have dealt with hamstring injuries since early August.

Freeman and Coleman were slated to miss 2-4 weeks, but both players returned to practice last week. Although, they were held out of the second preseason game against the Jets.

“Our running backs, both of those guys are definitely closer and are doing participation as well,” Quinn said Tuesday before practice, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “They are back into the mix today at practice and we’ll take it day-by-day from there. At least they are back and getting closer.”

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman injured during practice
by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer

Running back Devonta Freeman, who has been getting the bulk of the carries during Falcons training camp, suffered an injury Thursday and was forced to leave practice, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

According to Falcons coach Dan Quinn, Freeman suffered a hamstring injury when he was tackled hard after a run to the outside, but there was no further information on the severity of the injury. 

Freeman seemed in line to be the Falcons' No. 1 back in his second season. Last year, he had only 65 carries -- just over four per game -- for 248 yards and one touchdown.

Falcons' Devonta Freeman: No plans to 'play second' in backfield
by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman said he's preparing to be the go-to guy out of the backfield this season. 

A competition between Freeman, Antone Smith and rookie Tevin Coleman has been brewing, with a lot of analysts thinking Coleman could ultimately win the job. Freeman, who backed up Steven Jackson a year ago, is hoping not to be a reserve runner again. 

“I take a lot of pride in (being the go-to guy),” Freeman told the team's official website. "This has always been my dream. I never had a dream to come to the NFL and play second to (any) man."
