Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis tweeted that Freeman suffered a concussion during the Panthers-Falcons game in Week 9.

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is unlikely to play next Monday night at Seattle against the Seahawks after suffering his second concussion this season, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

Sunday's concussion was his third with the Falcons. Freeman, who played his collegiate football at Florida State University, was originally selected by Atlanta in the fourth round (103rd pick overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft.

Freeman leads the Falcons in rushing with 515 rushing yards and five rushing touchdowns on 116 carries. Not sure it's so good for Tevin Coleman, though any running back with a big workload has to be considered for Fantasy.

Freeman left the game against Dallas early in the first quarter and was taken to the locker room to be evaluated for a head injury. However, the following season, Freeman broke out, racking up 1,056 yards and a league-leading 11 touchdowns on the ground. Freeman had two other reported concussions in his career - one this preseason and one in November 2015.
