FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. (AP) - Running back Devonta Freeman, recovering from a concussion, will not play Sunday in the Atlanta Falcons’ game against the Minnesota Vikings.

Freeman missed practice all week, including Friday. Rookie Tevin Coleman is expected to start at running back.

Entering Week 12, Freeman ranked second in the NFL in yards from scrimmage and fifth in rushing.

Kicker Matt Bryant will miss the game with a right quadriceps injury. The Falcons signed Shayne Graham on Thursday to fill in.

Also, wide receiver Leonard Hankerson will be held out with a hamstring injury.

Coach Dan Quinn said Freeman has not completed the NFL concussion protocol. He said Freeman is “doing really well” and attended a team meeting on Friday.
