The news on Devonta Freeman's injury is still unclear, but early reports indicate he “could” be out about two weeks. The Falcons have Brian Hill and special teamer Kenjon Barner as the only potential running backs that have taken an offensive snap in their career. Fifth-round rookie Qadree Ollison was active on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints, but only played sparingly on special teams. That is not much depth, and certainly could become problematic if anyone suffered from an injury. Still, we expect Hill to take the bulk of all offensive snaps until Freeman returns. The Falcons have also added Craig Reynolds, per the Falcons. He could be up from the practice squad as soon as this Sunday.
