Falcons RB Devonta Freeman has received full clearance from his concussion, HC Dan Quinn said Tuesday. We'll file this away in case Freeman suffers another head injury at some point, but his fantasy stock is unaffected for now.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (concussion) will return to individual drills in Monday's practice, HC Dan Quinn said. “He’s still going through the protocol and part of that is returning to practice,” Quinn added. “He’ll do some individual work ... He’ll start the return to play process with us.” Freeman still hasn't received full clearance but is trending in that direction. He has 13 days before the opener. We haven't moved him down the RB rankings.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn revealed on Monday that RB Devonta Freeman is in the concussion protocol. Freeman departed practice on Sunday. “I didn’t think he was going to come back,” Quinn said after Sunday's practice. “He had some heat stuff that he dealt with from the first practice and again (Sunday.)” We'll update Freeman's status when we learn more.

The Falcons and RB Devonta Freeman have agreed to a 5-year, $41.25 million extension, according to NFL Network's Michael Silver. That $8.25 million annual average makes Freeman the highest-paid RB in the league. The extension locks him up in Atlanta through the 2022 season. Freeman will be 31 years old when the deal expires. This stabilizes the dynasty value of a RB who's finished top 6 in both PPR and non-PPR scoring the past 2 seasons. It also puts a dent in RB Tevin Coleman's ceiling. He's signed in Atlanta for another 2 seasons.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn confirmed that his team will continue to deploy a committee backfield. "We know both these guys are going to be a factor,'' Quinn said of Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman. "We’re going to utilize them both. Both of them are going to be a really big factor in what we’re doing." Freeman out-snapped Coleman just 36 to 32 in the opener and finished with just 2 more touches (15 to 13). Coleman was much more effective, totaling 117 yards vs. Freeman's 40. This remains a fluid situation, with Coleman capable of earning an even bigger role if he continues to outplay his backfield mate.

Freeman has missed just 1 game through 3 NFL seasons -- a Week 12 outing back in 2015 with a concussion. He's been remarkably durable otherwise, especially over the past 2 years. Freeman is the only RB to finish among the top 6 in PPR and non-PPR points in both of the last 2 seasons.
