Another game for the Atlanta Falcons, yet another absence for running back Devonta Freeman.

Falcons head coach Dan Quinn confirmed on Friday that the veteran running back will not play against the rival Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday. For Freeman, hes been out since the first quarter of the teams matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, which came back in Week 10. The tailback, who suffered his second concussion since August and third since 2015 against Dallas, returned to practice on Thursday in a limited role.

Hes able to participate in parts of practice, so hes still in the protocol, Quinn recently told ESPN. We wont know if hes available yet. Well take it all the way through the week, and the doctors will make the final determination on that. But its a good sign that hes making progress. So hell be back on the field today.

Freeman took a pair of hand-offs against Dallas prior to exiting the contest.
