Falcons RB Devonta Freeman out of concussion protocol

Tuesday, August 29, 2017, 2:23pm

Pro Football Talk - [Full Article]

Falcons running back Devonta Freeman returned to practice on Monday in one of the final steps he had to take before being cleared from the concussion protocol and no red flags that would have led to a longer stay were triggered once he got back on the field.

Coach Dan Quinn said Tuesday that Freeman is out of the concussion protocol and cleared for full action for the first time since getting hurt on August 13.

Fantasy Impact:

Freeman won’t play on Thursday in the preseason finale, but clearing the protocol leaves him on track to play when the Falcons begin the regular season against the Bears on September 10.

Scouting Report

Week 6 vs. Miami Dolphins

Devonta Freeman had 18 carries for 58 yards and a touchdown in the Falcons’ Week 4 loss to the Bills. He also added 2 catches for 20 yards. Freeman wasn’t as dominant in this one as he was in the Falcons’ first three games of the year, but he found the end zone for the fourth consecutive week. He remains the Falcons’ No. 1 back and is a weekly fantasy starter. On pace for 1,140 yards and 16 touchdowns, make sure Freeman is in your lineup for Week 6. He’s our RB5 for Sunday’s game against the Dolphins.
