Falcons rookie running back Devonta Freeman left the field with an undisclosed injury on Monday. He was back at practice on Tuesday.
“Devonta is fine,” Falcons coach Mike Smith said after practice. “Devonta was just dehydrated from practice and we wanted to be very precautionary, take him off the field. We got him rehydrated and he’s ready to go.”
Big relief for the Falcons, especially with Steven Jackson still sidelined. Jackson should be ready for the start of the season but it looks like Freeman could at least be an insurance policy if injuries again creep up on Jackson. Freeman's been a popular late-round draft selection.
