Falcons RB Devonta Freeman ruled out vs. Cowboys with concussion

Thomas Davis claims Devonta Freeman played with an undisclosed concussion

Thomas Davis claims Devonta Freeman played with an undisclosed concussion

ESPN's Adam Schefter categorized Freeman as "unlikely" to play next week and reported it "would not be surprising" if he missed multiple contests.

Freeman left the game against Dallas early in the first quarter and was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a head injury.

In his absence, the Falcons will likely heavily lean on backup Tevin Coleman to carry the starting duties in the running game.

Update: Freeman has been diagnosed with a concussion and is done for the day.

"The Hitchens hit didn't knock Freeman out", Davis tweeted.

Lee, a first-team All-Pro previous year, left the game in the first quarter because of a hamstring injury and his return was listed as questionable. Scary site but praying he's good though.

According to Davis, Freeman was actually concussed during last week's game against the Panthers. His concussion earlier this year came during the preseason, so he was given ample time to sit out before returning to team activities. Tevin Coleman is a good running back, but there's a reason Freeman became the highest-paid running back in the National Football League during the offseason.
