NFL: Green Bay Packers at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

The Atlanta Falcons will be a little undermanned when they take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football.

Running back Tevin Coleman, defensive end Dwight Freeney and tight end Jacob Tamme have all been ruled out for the NFC South battle.

Coleman missed Sunday’s game versus the Green Bay Packers after he injured his hamstring in Week 7. He leads the team with six total touchdowns.

Freeney is battling through a quad injury. He’s amassed three sacks on the season.

Tamme, who ranks fourth on the team with 210 receiving yards, injured his shoulder Sunday.
