The Falcons starting running back will likely still be in concussion protocol when the team takes on the Seattle Seahawks on Monday night, via ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

It would not be a surprise if Freeman's absence extended beyond this week and into multiple games, considering his history, according to sources.

The Atlanta Falcons will probably be without Devonta Freeman in Week 11.

Freeman exited in the first quarter of the Falcons' 27-7 victory over the Dallas Cowboys after taking a hit from linebacker Anthony Hitchens.

Half of USA adults have high blood pressure under new guidelines
High blood pressure can stress vessels and cause them to be less elastic, which can increase the risk of heart disease and stroke. The lower number is the diastolic reading, or the pressure level between the contractions when the heart is filling with blood.

Though noticeably woozy following the hit, Freeman walked to the locker room under his own power before he was ruled out when the concussion was diagnosed.

Sunday's concussion was his third with the Falcons.

The Falcons had meant to get both Freeman and Tevin Coleman more involved in the running game. Freeman had two other reported concussions in his career - one this preseason and one in November 2015.

Freeman made his second straight Pro Bowl last season, rushing for 1,079 yards and 11 touchdowns. Overall this season, Freeman has rushed for 515 yards and five touchdowns while also catching 19 passes for 137 yards.
