Falcons name Devonta Freeman, Sean Weatherspoon inactive for Week 12

New, comments

As expected for Freeman, and Spoon’s status helps clarify the situation at linebacker.

For the second straight week, the Falcons are without stud running back Devonta Freeman, who is working his way back from his second concussion of the year. That’s not a surprise, but hopefully this is the last week where that will be true.

The Falcons also have Ty Sambrailo listed as inactive, as he’d injured, and will have Austin Pasztor at swing tackle. With Duke Riley returning, the Falcons are listing Sean Weatherspoon as inactive, too. Poor guy.

Otherwise, there are no surprises here. Nick Williams, Blidi Wreh-Wilson, and Sean Harlow are break glass in case of emergency options at their positions, and Marvin Hall is getting a week on the bench after largely fading into the background at receiver of late. His inactive status may indicate that the Falcons will get Eric Saubert more involved in the passing game.

Full list =below. We’re minutes away from kickoff.
