The Atlanta Falcons has already been eliminated from playoff contention. Head coach Dan Quinn announced on Wednesday that running back Devonta Freeman will not play the rest of the season.
Just two weeks ago, Quinn admitted that there was a chance that Freeman could return to the field towards the end of the season. He was eligible to come off the injured list this week.
Freeman has been battling a foot and groin injury in Week 5 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Against the Steelers, he had eight carries for 32 yards. He also had two receptions for nine yards.
Without their starter, Tevin Coleman, Brian Hill, and Jeremy Langford will finish the season as the ball carriers for the Falcons.
The 26-year-old Miami, Florida native has only played in two games this season. He had six carries for 36 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFL Kickoff game. Freeman also had three receptions for 14 yards in the game, as well.
The two games are the fewest he has ever played in an NFL season. Previously, it was 14 games during the 2017 season.
In his five-year career with the Falcons, he appeared in 63 games, including 45 starts. He had 767 carries for 3,316 yards and 30 touchdowns.
Freeman also had 198 receptions for 1,605 yards and an additional seven touchdowns.
