Falcons' Dwight Freeney: Wants to keep playing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney intends to continue playing going into the 2017 season, USA Today's Tom Pelissero reports.

Freeney, who is likely destined for the Hall of Fame once he retires, ended his 15th season with four sacks over the Falcons' final eight total games, including one in their Super Bowl collapse. That followed Freeney posting eight sacks during the 2015 regular season, proving he's still impactful in a situational pass-rushing role. Set to be a free agent at 37 years old, Freeney is clearly not an every-down option, but his pedigree off the edge should still garner interest on the open market.

Falcons' Dwight Freeney: Avoids inactive list Sunday
by RotoWire Staff | Special to

Freeney (quad) is active for Sunday's matchup in Philadelphia.

Freeney missed Wednesday's practice but returned on a limited basis Thursday and followed that with a full session Friday. His IDP value may be hindered by limited usage, however, as Freeney hasn't seen more than 30 snaps since Week 5 against Denver, nor has he recorded a sack since then.

Falcons' Dwight Freeney: Ruled out for Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney (quadriceps) has been ruled out for Thursday's game against the Buccaneers, Kelsey Conway of reports.

Freeney wasn't able to practice earlier in the week due to what was believed to be a veteran's day of recuperation, but the quad injury will ultimately keep him sidelined Week 9. Brooks Reed and Tyson Jackson figure to see a majority of the reps at defensive end for the Falcons.

Falcons' Dwight Freeney: No practice Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney (quadriceps) did not practice Monday, D. Orlando Ledbetter of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports.

Freeney was able to give it a go during Sunday's tilt against the Packers and isn't believed to have sustained any sort of injury. It's likely the veteran was simply given the day off considering the Falcons have a quick turnaround in Week 9, playing Thursday night against the Bucs.

Falcons' Dwight Freeney: Ready to play
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Freeney (quadriceps) is active Sunday against the Packers.

Freeney didn't practice in any capacity this week, but that doesn't appear to be much of a concern for head coach Dan Quinn. However, the veteran defensive end is still just a rotational player for the Falcons at this stage in his career and offers minimal IDP appeal.
