That momentum might slow a bit Monday.
Falcons running back Devonta Freeman could be out about two weeks with a foot sprain, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source informed. It's relatively minor, though it's an injury that affects the toe more than the foot, Rapoport added.
Despite Atlanta's lack of offensive output, Freeman is obviously extremely valuable to the team's plans and his status remains important. He'll be counted on to help keep the Falcons' newfound momentum going.
The Falcons are also looking at the potential of being without Austin Hooper. An MRI revealed the tight end suffered an MCL sprain in Sunday's win and is expected to miss some time, Rapoport reported. He will have a second opinion to determine how long he'll be out, Rapoport added.
Here is other news we're monitoring Monday:
»New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore suffered a hamstring strain and is week to week, per Rapoport.
»Philadelphia Eagles have again signed wide receiver Jordan Matthews. He played for Philadelphia in 2018 as well as the first three years of his career, catching 245 passes over those four seasons.
Conner, who has missed the past two weeks, said Monday that, "I think I'll be good to go, but no guarantees," per NFL Network's Omar Ruiz.
»New York Jets guard Brian Winters dislocated his shoulder, coach Adam Gase announced. Winters' injury is most likely season ending and might require surgery. Tight end Chris Herndon will be out an extended period of time with a fractured rib, Gase said.
