Falcons’ Freeman could miss another game with concussion
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) — Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman remains on concussion protocol, threatening his status for Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay.
Freeman suffered the concussion on the second play of Atlanta’s win over Dallas on Nov. 12 and missed last week’s 34-31 win at Seattle.
Tevin Coleman would again start against the Buccaneers if Freeman can’t return.
Freeman, the league’s highest-paid running back, spent the last two weeks of the preseason in concussion protocol. He also suffered a concussion during the 2015 season.
Freeman, punter Matt Bosher (left ankle) and offensive lineman Ty Sambrailo (hamstring strain) were held out of Wednesday’s practice.
