Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Likely out for Week 11

Freeman (concussion) is unlikely to play Week 11 in Seattle, and he may require a multi-game absence, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Freeman suffered the injury in the first quarter of Sunday's 27-7 win over the Cowboys, allowing Tevin Coleman to set season-high marks for offensive snaps (44), carries (20) and rushing yards (83). The report hints that Freeman is dealing with some pretty serious symptoms, but teams typically don't have a good feel for a player's availability until later in the week. Fortunately for Freeman, he does have some extra time to recover as the Falcons prepare for a Monday Night Football showdown with the Seahawks. Freeman had two other reported concussions in his career -- one this preseason and one in November 2015.
