Panthers DT Kawann Short is inactive for today's game against the Falcons because of a calf injury. That takes Carolina's best D-lineman out of the lineup, improving the matchup for Falcons RB Tevin Coleman. The 1st meeting found Coleman delivering 1 of his two 100-yard rushing lines so far this year.

4:12pm EST 12/17/18

Falcons RB Ito Smith needs knee surgery and will be placed on IR, HC Dan Quinn said Monday. No word on Smith's exact injury or how long he'll be sidelined. His absence leaves Tevin Coleman and Brian Hill as the only RBs on Atlanta's roster -- although Quinn said he'd consider promoting Jeremy Langford from the practice squad. Either way, Coleman is looking at a hefty workload these final 2 weeks.

FOX's Jay Glazer reports that the Falcons are placing RB Devonta Freeman. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the veteran will have groin surgery and hopes to return this season. The 8-week timeline on being designated to return from IR wouldn't bring him back until at least Week 15, though. That puts both Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith into play as potential weekly fantasy starters the rest of the way. Coleman played 38 snaps to Smith's 31 against Tampa, but Smith beat him 11-10 in rushing attempts and matched Coleman's 2 targets. Coleman remains the slightly better bet for touches and the stronger bet for yardage production the rest of the way.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that RB Devonta Freeman (foot) is "likely" out for next Monday night's game against the Giants. Atlanta has a Week 8 bye, which might play a part in the team's decision to hold him out. RBs Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith figure to again form a committee vs. the G-Men.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Bucs. The team doesn't expect this to be a long-term absence, but we'll monitor Freeman's status next week. It's worth noting that Atlanta has a Week 8 bye. Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith will handle backfield duties on Sunday. In the 3 full games Freeman has missed this season, Coleman averaged 15 carries and 3.3 targets and Smith 6 carries and 2.7 targets.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's looking unlikely to play against the Bucs this weekend. We just removed Freeman from the Week 6 RB Rankings and bumped Tevin Coleman and Ito Smith up.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman missed Wednesday's practice with a foot injury. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport hears that it's a bone contusion and that Freeman's availability for this weekend's game against the Bucs is "clearly in doubt." We'll keep an eye on the situation. Freeman's absence would again make Tevin Coleman Atlanta's lead back with Ito Smith in a change-of-pace role.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said in a Wednesday morning radio appearance that he expects RB Devonta Freeman (knee) to return for this weekend's game against the Steelers. Freeman returned to limited practices last week, and we'll watch his participation level over the next few days. If healthy, he figures to regain lead duties in Atlanta's backfield.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that he "hopes" to get RB Devonta Freeman (knee) back for this weekend's game against the Steelers. Freeman returned to limited practices last week, so we'd consider him a bit better than 50/50 to play on Sunday. Tevin Coleman has been slightly underwhelming as Atlanta's lead back over the past 3 games.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) is out for Sunday's game against the Bengals. He returned to practice this week, giving him a shot to play next weekend. Tevin Coleman gets another game as Atlanta's feature back and is a RB1 in what should be a shootout vs. Cincinnati.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) did not practice on Wednesday. HC Dan Quinn did say that Freeman has been cleared for walkthroughs, but he's seems unlikely to be ready for this weekend's game against the Bengals. Tevin Coleman will get another outing as Atlanta's lead back.

As expected, Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday’s game against the Saints. He’s 2 weeks into what was deemed a 2-4 week injury, so consider him questionable for Week 4. Tevin Coleman tallied 20 touches as Atlanta’s lead back last week and is looking at a similar workload on Sunday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter reports that Falcons RB Devonta Freeman is expected to miss 2-4 weeks with a knee contusion. The issue is with the same knee in which he sprained the MCL and PCL in late last season. We'll see if this time off solves the problem, but it's possible the knee is an issue all year. Tevin Coleman will serve as Atlanta's feature back for as long as Freeman is out, making him a borderline RB1 in fantasy lineups. Rookie Ito Smith is expected to serve as the #2 RB.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) has been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. The team has insisted that his knee injury is minor, but Freeman didn't practice all week. He's no lock to return for Week 3. Tevin Coleman will operate as a feature back for Atlanta on Sunday. He tallied 58 total yards and a TD and 97 yards and 2 scores, respectively, in the 2 games Freeman missed last year.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) missed his 2nd straight practice on Thursday. He's starting to look iffy for this weekend's game against the Panthers. Freeman's absence would leave Tevin Coleman as Atlanta's feature back. In the 2 games Freeman missed last year, Coleman went for 58 total yards and a TD and 97 total yards and 2 scores.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (knee) will not practice on Wednesday. HC Dan Quinn said Freeman is "sore" and labeled him "day-to-day." This isn't believed to be a serious injury, but Freeman is far from a lock to play against the Panthers this weekend. His absence would leave Tevin Coleman as Atlanta's feature back. Check back tomorrow for another update.

The Falcons added Southern Miss RB Ito Smith in the 4th round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Smith topped 1,100 rushing yards each of the past 3 seasons and left school with a solid 5.5 yards per carry average. He’s also a strong pass-catcher, averaging 10.3 yards per catch on 140 career grabs. At 5’9 and 195 pounds, he projects as a change-of-pace option at the next level. He has a shot to step in as Atlanta’s #2 RB if Tevin Coleman walks in free agency next offseason.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn announced on Thursday that RB Tevin Coleman has cleared the concussion protocol. Barring a setback, he'll return for this weekend's game against the Saints. Over their last 5 games together, RB Devonta Freeman has carried 71 times and caught 9 passes vs. 42 carries and 5 catches for Coleman. Expect a similar split this Sunday, making Coleman a RB3 or flex option.

Falcons RB Tevin Coleman returned to a limited practice on Wednesday -- his 1st since sustaining a concussion in Week 14. It gives him a shot to play against the Saints this weekend. We'll continue to track Coleman's progress.

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.
