Report: Devonta Freeman headed to injured reserve after missing most of the season thus far

Report: Devonta Freeman headed to injured reserve after missing most of the season thus far

It’s a blow for the Falcons and a blow for Freeman alike. Per the always plugged-in NFL insider Jay Glazer, the Falcons will make room for Matt Bryant’s short-term replacement on the roster by placing Devonta Freeman on injured reserve. This news sucks. Freeman has lost most of his season to injuries, having played parts of two games and otherwise sitting out with what seems to be an ever-growing list of ailments. The Falcons will shut him down for the year to give him the chance to rest, get healthy, and hopefully return to form in 2019. Big loss for Falcons, they are going to put...

It appears that will extend into Week 7 action against the New York Giants as head coach Dan Quinn stated that Freeman he’s working his way through a groin […] The post Falcons RB Devonta Freeman likely to miss Week 7 appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Atlanta Falcons fantasy stud and dud from Week 6

Atlanta Falcons fantasy stud and dud from Week 6

A familiar face and the first ever two-time dud. How about that? A win for a change! The offense had their fourth 30-point performance of the season (ironically, all four came with Devonta Freeman not playing), and the fantasy football bounty was plentiful. We have a lot of great content analyzing the game here at The Falcoholic, but in this article, we’ll look at things strictly from a fantasy football perspective. Let’s look at Atlanta’s top fantasy performer and biggest fantasy disappointment from Week 6’s victory against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Fantasy Stud/Dud 2018...

Colts rumors: Tevin Coleman could be a potential trade target

Tevin Coleman has been a key piece for the Atlanta Falcons’ offense over the past few seasons, even though he is not the starting running back. Devonta Freeman has been the starter but has been dealing with nagging injury issues this season. Unfortunately, the team has been struggling and are currently just 2-4 on the […] The post Colts rumors: Tevin Coleman could be a potential trade target appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Matt Bryant, Devonta Freeman ruled out for Monday Night Football against the Giants

Matt Bryant, Devonta Freeman ruled out for Monday Night Football against the Giants

That’s not a good sign this early, but thankfully the Falcons have a bye coming next. When Matt Bryant pulled up lame kicking what almost certainly was a game-sealing field goal, given what the Buccaneers managed to do shortly thereafter, many of us feared the worst. You’re talking about a 43-year-old kicker, after all, and as good as Bryant is nobody beats Father Time forever. Thankfully, it doesn’t sound like this is the kind of injury that will knock Bryant out for the rest of the year, which is all we could ask for. He is going to miss at least one week, however, and Devonta...

Mohamed Sanu questionable to return to Buccaneers vs. Falcons with hip injury

Mohamed Sanu questionable to return to Buccaneers vs. Falcons with hip injury

Oh no, not again. As if the Falcons weren’t already in dire injury straits on defense and with Devonta Freeman out of the lineup, they also lost Calvin Ridley early in Sunday’s contest against the Buccaneers. Now Mohamed Sanu has suffered a hip injury. He is questionable to return to the game. The Falcons had a strong first half against the Bucs, but have looked flat since returning to the field in the third quarter. Having Ridley out makes life much easier for the Buccaneers defense. Having Sanu out dramatically lessens Atlanta’s chances of coming away with a win, especially...

Ito Smith sets Falcons rookie record with third touchdown in three games

Ito Smith sets Falcons rookie record with third touchdown in three games

The impressive rookie running back is having a tremendous start to his career. Ito Smith may or may not turn out to be a great NFL running back, but he’s undeniably enjoying a fine start to his Falcons career, and he’s got a team record to show for it. As we mentioned, Smith had an opportunity to set a rookie record for consecutive games with a rushing touchdown. He did early in the second quarter, showing some agility and explosion en route to a long touchdown run to put the Falcons up 14-6. With Tevin Coleman approaching free agency and Devonta Freeman chronically dinged up of late,...

Ito Smith could set a new Falcons record vs. the Buccaneers on Sunday

Ito Smith could set a new Falcons record vs. the Buccaneers on Sunday

The fourth rounder has made the most of his opportunities so far. I was excited about Ito Smith as a draft prospect coming out of Southern Miss. I liked his versatility as a receiver and a runner, and he’s stepped up in the wake of Devonta Freeman’s injuries. Smith has done so well, in fact, that he has an opportunity to add his name to the Falcons’ record books with a touchdown on Sunday. Rookie RB @ItoSmith can become the first rookie in franchise history to score a rushing TD in three straight games this Sunday.More ➡️ https://t.co/FhTcmLQ649 pic.twitter.com/Vg4srVyzP4—...

Falcons injury update: Derrick Shelby ruled out for Buccaneers game; Devonta Freeman dealing with two injuries

Atlanta’s top run-stuffing defensive end is out for game 6, and Atlanta’s top running back is dealing with more injuries than previously known. The Falcoholic is turning into the Injuryupdateaholic. We’ve noticed a pretty consistent trend for player injuries: Dan Quinn expresses vague optimism early in the week about injury progress, those players don’t practice, and they are all ruled out by Friday. We covered the news that Devonta Freeman and Grady Jarrett were ruled out yesterday. Tevin Coleman is a great backup so Freeman’s loss isn’t a huge deal, especially as it gets...
