Falcons RB Freeman will play against Rams

Jan 4, 2018 - 7:31 PM Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is set to play in Saturday's wild-card game at the Los Angeles Rams.

Coach Dan Quinn told reporters on Thursday that no members of the team will be given injury designations on the final injury report of the week.

Freeman sat out Tuesday's practice with an ailing knee before participating with the team in each of the past two practices. Quinn said Freeman had no limitations while running and cutting on Thursday.

The 25-year-old Freeman told reporters that he wasn't concerned about the injury.

"No, because I feel good," Freeman said, per ESPN. "Because God's got me. I always was feeling good. ... In the NFL, you get banged up sometimes. You just have to try and figure out a way to get healthy; stay healthy. And I figured it out."

Freeman led Atlanta in rushing with 865 yards and added seven touchdowns on the ground despite missing two games due to a concussion. He struggled in the final two regular-season games, gaining a combined 59 yards on 22 carries.
