The Falcons saved their season with a win against the Jets this past Sunday. At 4-3 they sit at third in the NFC South with a pivotal game this week against the Carolina Panthers. A win against the Panthers would go a long way to helping salvage what has been a disappointing season thus far.
The team did have a scare during the fourth quarter against the Jets. Their star running back, Devonta Freeman left the game after taking a shot to the shoulder from cornerback Juston Burris.
Freeman is a very important part of the Falcons offensive gameplan and leads the team with 466 rushing yards and five rushing TDs. The injury was called a stinger and head coach Dan Quinn didn’t elaborate on the injury. Freeman also underwent further tests and based on Quinn’s assessment, there isn’t too much to worry about.
He’ll be limited some on Wednesday, but he won’t be out.
The Falcons will have a few players who will also be limited but no one will be held out. This is great news for a team that is trying to save their season and put together a run during the second-half of the season.
