Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Bucs. He didn't practice all week and seemingly hasn't made much -- if any -- progress through the protocol. Coleman's absence makes RB Devonta Freeman a good bet for 20+ touches vs. Tampa's 24th-ranked RB defense.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman remains in the concussion protocol and did not practice on Friday. He has an extra day to get cleared with Atlanta heading to Tampa Bay for Monday Night Football, but Coleman isn't looking like a good bet to play in that one. His absence would turn Devonta Freeman into a workhorse and an elite RB1.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman sustained a concussion late in Thursday night's win over the Saints, HC Dan Quinn announced Friday. Coleman missed 2 games with a concussion back in 2015. He'll have 10 days to pass through the protocol this time around. We'll track his progress next week.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) put in a full week of practice and will return for Sunday’s game against the Vikings. He should step back in as Atlanta’s lead back but is more of a high-end RB2 vs. Minnesota’s 2nd-ranked RB defense. Tevin Coleman reverts back to RB3/flex status.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman has cleared the concussion protocol and will practice on Wednesday, HC Dan Quinn said. Barring a setback, Freeman will return for this weekend's game against the Vikings. He averaged 14.3 carries and 3 targets in his 8 full games this season and should see a similar workload on Sunday. RB Tevin Coleman is back to RB3/flex status.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is out for this weekend’s game against the Bucs. He put in limited practices on Thursday and Friday, seemingly putting him on track to be cleared for Week 13. Tevin Coleman gets another game as Atlanta’s feature back this weekend, making him an RB1 in fantasy lineups.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) returned to a limited practice on Thursday. He's made some progress through the protocol but still has at least a couple more stages to pass through. We'll get another update on his status tomorrow.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman remains in the concussion protocol as of Wednesday morning, according to ESPN's Vaughn McClure. It's unclear how much progress Freeman has made since suffering his 2nd concussion in 3 months 10 days ago. We'll continue to keep an eye on his status ahead of this weekend's game vs. the Bucs.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) has been ruled out for Monday night's game against the Seahawks. He didn't practice all week and is no lock to return for Week 12. Tevin Coleman will play a feature-back role on Monday.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) did not practice on Thursday. Dealing with his 2nd concussion in 3 months, Freeman is highly unlikely to play against the Seahawks on Monday night. That'll leave the talented Tevin Coleman in a feature role.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) is "unlikely" to play against the Seahawks this weekend. "It also would not be surprising to see it turn into a multi-game absence," Schefter adds. None of this is surprising considering Freeman has now suffered 2 concussions in the past 3 months. Tevin Coleman will operate as something close to an every-down back for however long Freeman is out. Atlanta's next 3 opponents rank 6th, 26th and 3rd in Adjusted Fantasy Points Allowed to RBs.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman left in the 1st quarter against the Cowboys after taking a helmet shot directly to the head. Cameras showed him walking off to the locker room. Frankly, we'll be surprised if he returns to the game.

Update: Freeman has been diagnosed with a concussion and is done for the day.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) is active for today’s game against the Cowboys. He only got in a limited practice on Friday, so there’s some added risk here. But Jones remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) isn't listed on the final Week 10 injury report. He put in full practices on Thursday and Friday, so that knee shouldn't be an issue. Freeman is in a prime bounce-back spot at home vs. a Dallas defense allowing 4.3 yards per carry to opposing RBs.

Falcons K Matt Bryant (calf) will play against the Cowboys this weekend. He kicked on Friday after sitting out the first 2 practices. Bryant kicked through this issue last week and is fine to get into Week 10 fantasy lineups.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) will play against the Cowboys on Sunday, according to the team’s official website. That’s no surprise after Jones played through the injury last week. He put in a limited practice on Friday after sitting out the first 2 days. There’s increased risk here, but Jones remains a must-start in season-long leagues.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (ankle) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. HC Dan Quinn said this morning that he thought Jones might be able to get in a limited workout, so it at least sounds like he was close. We'll see if he's able to get back on the field tomorrow.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) will be a full-go in Thursday's practice, HC Dan Quinn said. So that knee shouldn't be an issue this weekend. Freeman has disappointed lately but is in a prime bounce-back spot at home against a Dallas defense allowing 4.3 yards per carry to RBs.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman was limited in Wednesday's practice with a knee issue. It's a new injury, but the fact that he was on the field on Wednesday puts him on track to play against the Cowboys this weekend. We'll keep an eye on Freeman over the next few days.

Falcons WR Julio Jones (lower leg) did not practice on Wednesday. He did participate in the walkthrough, though, HC Dan Quinn said. Jones played through the injury last week and should tentatively be expected to play against the Cowboys this Sunday. We'll get another update tomorrow.
