Shark Bites

Falcons RB Ito Smith exited in the 1st quarter of Sunday's game against the Colts for a concussion check. We'll update his status when we learn more. Smith's absence leaves Devonta Freeman as Atlanta's feature back.

Update: Smith has been ruled out for the rest of the game with a concussion.

The Falcons released RB Ito Smith. A replacement-level player, Smith has averaged just 3.9 yards per carry and 5.7 yards per catch over 3 NFL seasons. His departure, though, leaves Atlanta with only RBs Mike Davis, Qadree Ollison and Tony Brooks-James. The Falcons are an obvious candidate to add a RB in the draft. But if they don't, Davis would be set up for a heavy workload.

Falcons RB Ito Smith (neck) is out for Sunday's game against the Saints. Brian Hill will step in as Atlanta's #2 RB, but Smith's absence is an upgrade for Devonta Freeman. In 2 full games without Smith this season, Freeman has averaged 14.5 carries and 6 targets. Those marks drop to 12.2 carries and 5 targets with Smith.

Falcons RB Ito Smith (neck) remained sidelined for Wednesday's practice. That doesn't bode well for his chances of playing against the Saints this weekend. Smith's absence would be a boost to RB Devonta Freeman's fantasy stock.

Falcons HC Dan Quinn said Monday that RB Ito Smith has been diagnosed with a concussion and won't play against the Seahawks this weekend. We'll see if he can get cleared after Atlanta's Week 9 bye. Brian Hill will step in as the #2 back on Sunday, but RB Devonta Freeman should dominate backfield work.

Falcons RB Ito Smith was knocked out in the 1st half of today’s game against the Rams with what ESPN’s Vaughn McClure reports is a stinger. “Should be good,” McClure adds. We’ll keep an eye on Smith coming week.
