Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (hip) took full practice reps Thursday after being limited Wednesday. Despite a bad matchup against a solid Green Bay run defense, Freeman is a fantastic start given Tevin Coleman’s absence.

Cobb should be fine to face the Falcons in Week 8, though ESPN’s Rob Demovsky said that Cobb did very little on Thursday.

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

The Falcons spent Monday coming up with plans to deal with running back Tevin Coleman’s injury and they addressed the need for other options by adding a pair of runners to the roster on Tuesday.

The team announced that they have signed veteran Stevan Ridley and promoted Terron Ward from the practice squad.

Related players: Devonta Freeman

Fantasy Impact:

This probably doesn't bode well for Tevin Coleman's status this week. If Coleman can't go, Devonta Freeman should see a bigger role. On Monday, we reported the Falcons say they are confident in Ward so it's possible he does get some work.

RB Tevin Coleman strained his hamstring in Sunday’s loss to the Chargers, Falcons head coach Dan Quinn confirmed on Monday.

Coleman’s status remains unclear as the Falcons are waiting to find out the severity of the strain.

Related players: Devonta Freeman, Terron Ward

If Coleman’s injury is serious enough to the point that he need to miss some time, Quinn says they are confident in Terron Ward who is currently on Atlanta’s practice squad. It could also mean more work for Freeman.
