Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (groin) is not listed on the final Week 17 injury report. He only got in a limited practice on Friday but will play against the Bucs this weekend. Coleman could cede work to RB Brian Hill, making him a risky fantasy play.
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.
