Falcons' Devonta Freeman: Ruled out for Week 6
Freeman (foot) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against Tampa Bay, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.
Freeman didn't practice at all this week and will now sit out for a fourth time in six games. Tevin Coleman gets another opportunity to lead the Atlanta backfield, with rookie Ito Smith in a supporting role. The Falcons reportedly don't view the bone bruise in Freeman's foot as a long-term issue, but it is somewhat worrisome that he's also dealing with a groin injury, according to D. Orlando Ledbetter of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. The next opportunity to play will come on Monday Night Football against the Giants in Week 7.
