Duke Riley out, Devonta Freeman limited in Wednesday’s Falcons practice

The Falcons are dealing with very few injuries heading into the Panthers game.

The Atlanta Falcons are relatively healthy heading into their first, big divisional matchup against the Carolina Panthers, but they are not quite injury-free.

Riley will be out and Jordan Tripp just went on injured reserve, but the Falcons did get LaRoy Reynolds back, recently signed Sean Weatherspoon, and have Deion Jones, De’Vondre Campbell and now Vic Beasley available to play the position. They should be fine without Riley for another week.

The only other significant note we have is that the Falcons had Devonta Freeman in a non-contact jersey, which is not a surprise given that the team told us he would likely be limited early in this week. There is no indication he won’t be ready to go on Sunday, but Tevin Coleman may get a larger workload if Freeman is in any way limited.

Keep an eye on Freeman’s status the rest of the way, but otherwise it looks like we don’t have to worry about injury issues between now and Sunday.
