Speaking on 92.9 The Game on Wednesday, coach Dan Quinn said Devonta Freeman is back at practice this week and he expects the running back to play. Freeman was listed as limited on the team's practice report.
While an already potent Falcons offense gets a boost with Freeman's return, the defense suffered another loss.
Quinn also said stud defensive tackle Grady Jarrett would miss the Week 5 tilt. Jarrett injured his ankle in Sunday's defeat to Cincinnati. Quinn wouldn't put a timetable on the defensive tackle's return.
"When we get him back right, we'll get him back in there when we can," the coach said, via the team's official website.
