Falcons Running Back Devonta Freeman in Concussion Protocol; Won’t Play vs Steelers

The Falcons are set to take on the Steelers in the second week of preseason this upcoming week, and will do so without the services of running back Devonta Freeman, who Monday was placed in the league’s concussion protocol on Monday.

Coach Dan Quinn said that Freeman was held out of practice as well on Monday.

Freeman started practice on Sunday, but left about an hour and 20 minutes in the practice. He walked off the field under his own power with a member of the training staff alongside.

“I didn’t think he was going to come back,” Quinn said after practice on Sunday. “He had some heat stuff that he dealt with from the first practice and again (Sunday.)”

Freeman received fluids after going inside.
