According to the report, Freeman will be re-evaluated this week but his absence could be extended to multiple games as a precaution after he suffered a concussion earlier this year during the preseason.
Falcons RB Devonta Freeman left in the 1st quarter against the Cowboys after taking a helmet shot directly to the head.
The Falcons played the Carolina Panthers in Week 9, and Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis immediately suggested Freeman's concussion on Sunday was not a new injury via a since-deleted tweet. 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.
