Falcons RB Devonta Freeman set to have surgery on groin

Devonta Freeman (groin) scheduled to have surgery on Thursday in Philadelphia, source tells me.

Related players: Tevin Coleman, Ito Smith

Fantasy Impact:

Coleman and Smith will take over the workload. As we reported earlier, Coleman is averaging just 3.7 yards per carry while Smith has scored a TD in three straight games. Even if Coleman returns from IR, he'll need to miss eight weeks first.

Scouting Report

Week 6 vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Devonta Freeman rushed eight times for 32 yards in the Falcons’ Week 5 loss to the Steelers. He also caught two passes for an additional nine yards but suffered a knee injury, leaving his Week 6 status in doubt. This is quickly turning into a lost season for Freeman and the Falcons, who are now 1-4 to start the year. Assuming Freeman doesn’t play, Tevin Coleman will be Atlanta’s No. 1 back, and rookie Ito Smith will be promoted again to No. 2.
