We were not too worried about Devonta Freeman when he suffered a concussion, but Dan Quinn announced he came out of the league’s concussion protocol as expected.

Freeman played way back in week one of the preseason. During practice a few days later, Quinn thought he was having some heat-related issues that was later diagnosed as a concussion. At the time, we assumed Freeman was done for preseason but would be ready for week one.
It sounds like that is the plan. Freeman will be a full participant in practice, but the Falcons will keep him away from too much action until they play the Chicago Bears.
