Devonta Freeman 'off to a good start' in protocol

ESPN - [Full Article]

Atlanta Falcons coach Dan Quinn said running back Devonta Freeman is going through the concussion protocol, and Freeman's status for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings remains in limbo.

"He was diagnosed with a concussion and he'll go back through the concussion protocol this week,'' Quinn said of Freeman. "I really don't have a lot to go on other than the fact that he's off to a good start with that. He's a competitor that we rely on for all sorts of things; run game, pass game. We've seen the player that he is. Let's not talk less or more. He's a real factor.''

Fantasy Impact: 

Tevin Coleman struggled taking over for Freeman last week but could be line for a bigger workload if Freeman is unable to play in Week 12. Freeman and the Falcons play in an early game on Sunday at home against the Vikings. Things could get tricky for owners with three Thursday games this week, so have a good plan in place if you want to wait it out on Freeman.
