Falcons likely to play without top RB Devonta Freeman vs. Seahawks

The Atlanta Falcons will probably be without Devonta Freeman in Week 11.

Devonta Freeman's fall-back-to-earth season continued when he was ruled out with a concussion about halfway through the first quarter of Sunday's game against the Cowboys.

The team late announced Freeman has a concussion and would not return to the game. While most believed it was a hit from Cowboys linebacker Anthony Hitchens that caused the concussion, Carolina Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis has a different theory. Freeman, who played his collegiate football at Florida State University, was originally selected by Atlanta in the fourth round (103rd pick overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

The Falcons want to be extremely cautious with the running back, especially considering it's his second concussion in four months.

Freeman, 25, leads the Falcons in rushing with 515 yards and five touchdowns on 116 carries.

The Falcons had meant to get both Freeman and Tevin Coleman more involved in the running game.

Coleman rushed for 83 yards and a touchdown in Freeman's stead against the Cowboys.

Freeman missed two preseason games after suffering a concussion in a practice in August.
