Falcons RB Devonta Freeman clears concussion protocol

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is on track to play in Week 13.

Freeman has cleared concussion protocol and is ready to practice, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. The Falcons starting running back is expected to practice on Wednesday.

Atlanta plays the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday at Mercedes Benz Stadium.

Freeman’s missed the last two games due to a concussion that he sustained in Week 10’s victory over the Dallas Cowboys. The Falcons running back wore a non-contact jersey in practice last week while still being in concussion protocol.

Tevin Coleman filled in nicely for Freeman in his absence. Coleman rushed for 140 yards and 3 touchdowns in the last two games.

Freeman, the two-time Pro Bowl running back, has 515 rushing yards and 5 rushing touchdowns in 9 games this season.
