Falcons RB Devonta Freeman told reporters after Saturday's season-ending loss in Philadelphia that he's been playing through MCL and PCL sprains. He was on the injury report with a knee for both the Wild Card and Divisional Rounds, so it looks like the injuries occurred in Week 17. Freeman is hoping to avoid surgery, but we'll keep tabs on him this offseason. He set 3-year lows in carries, rushing yards, catches, receiving yards and total TDs in 2017 -- although he still finished 13th among RBs in PPR points. Freeman is still in the thick of his prime, turning 26 in March.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman (ankle) isn't listed on the team's final injury report for Saturday night's game against the Rams. HC Dan Quinn said Freeman had "no limitations" in Thursday's practice. So it doesn't sound like the knee will be a concern. Freeman boasts plenty of upside vs. a Rams defense that's allowed 4.5 yards per carry to RBs over the past 5 weeks.

Falcons RB Devonta Freeman was held out of Tuesday's practice and listed on the injury report with a knee. HC Dan Quinn said that Freeman will get in some work on Wednesday -- and that he's "encouraged" about his status for Saturday night's game against the Rams. This will be a situation to monitor closely over the next few days, though. Atlanta's best chance of pulling the upset this weekend is by attacking an L.A. run defense that sits 22nd in Football Outsiders' DVOA rankings.

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.

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.
