Devonta Freeman (shoulder) will be limited in practice, should play on Sunday

New, comments

Free took a tough hit to the shoulder yesterday, but it looks like it won’t slow him down next Sunday.

The Atlanta Falcons came out of Sunday’s game remarkably healthy, and that includes star running back Devonta Freeman, who took a tough hit and left the game against the New York Jets.

Phew. This is a huge relief.

The Falcons can’t afford to miss a player like Freeman while they fight for a playoff spot. His injury does not sound particularly serious, especially if Dan Quinn doesn’t even plan to give him a day off to rest. Sounds like he is good to go in the NFC South showdown against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
