Falcons’ Devonta Freeman Ready to Play Week 5

Published

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman has been out since Week 1 due to a knee injury he suffered during their season-opening loss to the Philadelphia Eagles, but says that he is more than ready to return in Week 5.

“I’m in-tune with my body and myself, so I know when I can be me,” Freeman said, according to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure. “Just getting back out there when I’m comfortable enough. I think right now, I’m comfortable enough to get out there. I feel good. I feel explosive. I’m ready to run.”

Freeman is a big part of the Falcons’ offense and has been sorely missed as the team has stumbled to a 1-3 start heading into their tilt against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

“I feel good,” Freeman said. “I feel real good, excited, about being out here. Coming out doing something I love to do is always a good time. I’m just excited to be out here.”

Dan Quinn

Despite a disappointing start to their 2019 season, the Atlanta Falcons are not considering firing head coach Dan Quinn, according to ESPN’s Vaughn McClure.

“No. … This staff has performed before. My hope is they can fix what needs to be fixed and start winning some games,” Blank said, per the report.

The Falcons dropped to 1-4 following their loss at the hands of the Houston Texans on Sunday, and look like a shell of the team that went to the Super Bowl only a few years ago.

The Falcons have seen a complete drop from their defense, and their offense has fallen off considerable since Kyle Shanahan left to become the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.
