Gossips and Rumors
Falcons star Devonta Freeman headed to injured reserve as injuries pile up in Atlanta. A Falcons roster that has been devastated by injuries this year has just taken another hit. The team announced on Tuesday that running back Devonta Freeman will be placed on injured reserve. The move comes as somewhat of a surprise and that's because Falcons coach Dan Quinn gave no indication that Freeman might miss an extended amount of time. Quinn met with the media on Monday and said that Freeman would "likely" miss the team's Week 7 game against the Giants. The decision to put Freeman on injured reserve will almost certainly end his season, although there's a chance that he could return to the team in late December, a move that the Falcons would likely only make if they're still in contention. Freeman has been battling injuries all year. In the Falcons' opener against the Eagles, the running back suffered a knee injury that ended up sidelining him for three weeks. The 26-year-old then returned in Week 5, only to suffer multiple injuries (groin, foot) in a 41-17 loss to the Steelers. Due to those two injuries, Freeman sat out of Atlanta's 34-29 win over the Buccaneers on Sunday. The Atlanta Falcons running back is having groin surgery and will be placed on injured reserve.
