Allen went to Poole’s nickel back spot. C.J. Goodwin replaced Trufant at left cornerback and rookie Damontae Kazee took over at free safety for Allen as the Falcons adjusted to the depleted secondary in a 34-20 win over the Buccaneers.
Goodwin played 47 of 71 (66 percent) of the defensive snaps. Kazee played 32 snaps (45 percent). Freeman has missed the past two games due to the concussion, his second this year and third of his career.
