FLOWERY BRANCH — Falcons coach Dan Quinn just finished up his press conference before the team takes the field on Wednesday.
He said running back Devonta Freeman is getting closer to returning and that he’s running at full speed. However, he will not play against the Cardinals at 7 p.m. Saturday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
“He has a visit with the independent part of the protocol coming up here soon,” Quinn said. “He won’t play in this ball game. He won’t practice today. He’s back up to full speed running. But it’s soon that he’ll be back to full speed in practice. But you won’t see him suited up this weekend.”
Here’s a tweetcap of the session.
Have to drop a few from my favorite second favorite UC Bearcat!!! (Sorry, the Big O is No. 1!)
We also had Tiff Blackmon in the house today.
