Devonta Freeman unlikely to play Week 11, could be out multiple games

Devonta Freeman

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman left Sunday’s win over the Dallas Cowboys with a concussion, and it sounds like the head injury could keep him on the sidelines for multiple weeks.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports that Freeman is unlikely to play against the Seattle Seahawks next Monday night and could end up missing more than one game.

Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis created some controversy after Freeman left Sunday’s game by claiming the running back suffered a concussion the week before. Davis criticized the way the situation was handled in a tweet that he later deleted.

Fortunately for the Falcons, they have another great running back in Tevin Coleman, who rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries in the win over Dallas. Coleman will be leaned on heavily in the coming weeks if Freeman can’t play.
