Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (foot) is out for Sunday's game against the Panthers. That leaves the starting job to Brian Hill, who handled all 18 RB opportunities (16 carries, 2 targets) after Freeman exited last week. Hill is a solid RB2 vs. Carolina's 29th-ranked RB defense.

NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports that Falcons RB Devonta Freeman "could be out about two weeks" after suffering a foot sprain in Sunday's win. The injury reportedly affects Freeman's big toe more than the foot. Brian Hill looks like Atlanta's lead back while Freeman is out, with rookie Qadree Ollison likely factoring in as well. Atlanta gets a run-friendly matchup in Carolina for Week 11.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman will be a full-go for training camp, HC Dan Quinn said. Knee, groin and foot injuries limited Freeman to just 2 games last season. “We can’t wait to get Free back,” Quinn said. “He’s having such an awesome offseason ... When you get to see the team out here this spring, I think you’ll feel the energy at running back certainly with Free leading the way.” Prior to the injury-wrecked 2018 campaign, Freeman had finished 13th, 6th and 1st among RBs in PPR points the previous 3 seasons. Still just 27, he's a prime bounce-back candidate in 2019 with Tevin Coleman gone and Atlanta beefing up the offensive line with free agents Jamon Brown and James Carpenter and rookies Chris Lindstrom and Kaleb McGary.

Injury Predictor

A concussion -- his 2nd in 3 months -- caused both of Freeman's missed games in 2017. But don't overlook the knee troubles that limited him in other outings. Freeman sprained the MCL and PCL in his right knee. Those issues and a shoulder stinger seemed to limit his work in several other contests. But he avoided post-season surgery and took part in OTAs. Freeman missed just 1 total game over his previous 3 seasons -- also for a concussion -- and hits 2018 as just a moderate injury risk among RBs.
