Falcons running back Devonta Freeman won’t be with the team in Seattle on Monday night.

The Falcons officially ruled Freeman out today for the game against the Seahawks. That was expected as he hadn’t practiced all week after suffering a concussion.

Tevin Coleman will handle most of the workload in Freeman’s absence, and the Falcons said during the week that they expect Coleman to be able to do most of the same things Freeman does in their offense.

Freeman is the Falcons’ leading rusher this season, with 116 carries for 515 yards and five touchdowns. Coleman has 83 carries for 399 yards and two touchdowns.

  1. Freeman got paid at just the right time. Before these concussions force his retirement. His running style will make him vulnerable to more head injuries. Unfortunately that doesn’t bode well for a long career at RB. Oh and Falcons lose this week AND miss the playoffs, proving that Matt Ryan , last years MVP can’t carry a team. This team was a one hit wonder, that almost won the big game.

  2. Hawks have been decimated by injuries. Falcons aren’t clicking like last season but they’re still a playoff caliber team. Tevin Coleman is more than capable of picking up the slack at RB. Falcons win 27-23.
