"Following the game against Pittsburgh, where Devonta injured his foot, we thought he was just having general soreness in his groin area," Quinn said. "As the week went on, it continued, so we decided to have him get some tests. It has been determined that he will need a procedure that will result in us placing him on injured reserve."
With Freeman out, the Falcons now will return to Coleman as the starter with rookie Smith as the backup. Coleman is averaging 3.7 rushing yards per game, while Smith set a franchise rookie record this past weekend by scoring a rushing touchdown in his third consecutive game.
Gruden says he is concerned about Marshawn Lynch’s groin strain. Could be long term. He is getting checked out this week.
"Hopefully, Mike's progressing and we get a chance to get him back here this season," Groh said.
Wallace wouldn't be allowed to return until Week 11 against the Saints, which could force the Eagles to make a decision sooner. Both Mack Hollins and Richard Rodgers, placed on IR before the start of the season, would be eligible to return before Wallace. And the team is allowed to bring back just two players from IR each season.

So if they get to a point when Hollins and Rodgers could return, the Eagles might have to try to determine if Wallace will be able to come back in Week 11. If he is, it would obviously be worth holding a spot for him. Without Wallace, the Eagles have lacked a consistent deep threat. The story added despite a big catch from Gibson, the Birds don't seem to want to expand his role.
Raheem Mostert played 23 offensive snaps and produced career-highs with 12 rushing attempts for 87 yards. Mostert was rewarded with playing time behind Matt Breida that had previously been designated for veteran Alfred Morris.
Morris got just one snap on Monday night. The story said Mostert was challenged by HC Kyle Shanahan after Breida went down in Week 5, but Mostert fumbled on his first attempt. Shanahan called out Mostert for that fumble in front of the team, and it looks like he responded with a very good game against the Packers. The performance now casts a lot of doubt on Morris' fantasy value going forward.
Tavon Austin isn't expected to play Sunday at Washington. The veteran wide receiver might be out for a while.
During his weekly radio appearance Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the groin injury Austin suffered in the third quarter on Sunday is similar to the injury former Cowboys cornerback Morris Claiborne had during the 2016 season.
Claiborne ended up missing nine games.
Austin had his right groin heavily wrapped as he congratulated players entering the locker room after Sunday's game. Austin has seven catches for 130 yards and two touchdowns to go along with six carries for 55 yards this season. Austin has also been Dallas' primary punt returner, returning 10 for 58 yards.

The next target date for Bell could be Monday, Oct. 22, when the work week rolls over and the Steelers begin preparations for their Week 8 divisional matchup against the Browns. The story added there is some belief he may wait until after the trade deadline on Tuesday, Oct. 30 to report. Doing so would shut down any opportunity the Steelers have of trading him -- they cannot do so until he signs his franchise tender.
Belichick on Josh Gordon: "I would just say his role is expanding weekly and we'll just see how it all plays out."
On Monday when we reported on this, the team had not committed to Peterman as the starter. The team signed Anderson last week, so this obviously leaves the door open to move away from the struggling Peterman and instead go with the veteran Anderson.
"Most likely he probably will miss this game," McVay said Monday. "And then dependent on how he responds it will just kind of be on a week-to-week basis."
Kupp was carted off the field in the first half of the Rams' victory over the Denver Broncos after safety Darian Stewart brought him down with a horse-collar tackle. McVay said he initially thought the injury appeared as though it could have been season-ending. After evaluation, Kupp started the second half but played only one series after the training staff determined it was in his best interest to sit out, the story went on to say.
As Adam Schefter reported earlier, Breida, Kittle and Garcon were expected to play against the Packers on Monday night, and now it's official. It's a bit of a surprise for Breida, especially, who seemed to be in doubt. This brings down the value of Morris.
As reported earlier, Allison and Cobb won't play against the 49ers meaning Valdes-Scantling becomes an interesting play for those in need. St. Brown could also be in the mix.
The team calls it a week-to-week injury with Enunwa’s pain tolerance factoring into his recovery time, but high-ankle sprains generally require three to four weeks.
Kearse put up a line of 9-94 last week and even Pryor went for 5-57-1 against the Colts, both, along with Anderson should see more targets. Enunwa, who missed all of last season with a neck injury, leads the team in targets (48), receptions (22) and receiving yards (287) through six weeks.
49ers' RB Matt Breida (shoulder, ankle), WR Pierre Garcon (shoulder, knee) and TE George Kittle (knee) -- all listed as questionable for tonight's game in Green Bay against the Packers -- all are expected to play, per source.

Breida is perhaps the biggest surprise of the group. We had a report earlier today that he was really pushing to play tonight and it seems like he's going to get his wish. An active Breida would hurt the fantasy value of Morris.
If Kupp misses time, it would mean more targets for Cooks and Woods. MCL sprains can mean missing multiple weeks, but that's certainly doesn't seem official yet based on the tweet. However, he seems unlikely for Week 7, which is against the 49ers.

And here we go again. The timing to show up this week made a lot of sense with the team's bye week, giving Bell extra time to get up to speed - if he even remained with the team. But for now, Bell remains out. It's possible he still actually shows up this week.
