ATLANTA - The Atlanta Falcons will likely be without Pro Bowl running back Devonta Freeman when they travel to Seattle next week to face the Seahawks.
According to ESPN’s Chris Mortensen and Adam Schefter, Freeman is “unlikely to play” in Week 11 after suffering his second concussion of the season on Sunday against the Cowboys.

Freeman left Sunday’s 27-7 victory in the first quarter after carrying the ball just one time.
Schefter tweeted Monday morning that he wouldn’t be surprised to see Freeman miss multiple games.
While it's unlikely Falcons RB Devonta Freeman will play Monday night at Seattle due to his second concussion of the season, it also would not be surprising to see it turn into a multi-game absence, either.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) November 13, 2017
The Falcons (5-4) face Seattle, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the Minnesota Vikings and the New Orleans Saints in their next four games.
Monday's game with the Seahawks will air LIVE on Channel 2.
