Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (knee) has been taking part in organized team activities, according to head coach Dan Quinn. Freeman missed two games with a head injury but was also slowed late in the year with knee issues, but he looks to be fine this spring. He missed his third straight 1,000-yard rushing season as a result, and Tevin Coleman figures to remain a big threat to his touches in 2018. If Freeman doesn't see his reception totals go back up, he'll be a volatile low-end RB1 this year.

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (knee) is slowly making progress toward being at full strength as the team continues offseason workouts. Freeman sustained ligament damage in his right knee at the end of last year but didn't require surgery. He injured both his posterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in the regular season finale and played through those injuries in two playoff games. "I'm able to do a lot of things that I couldn't do back in January, February," Freeman said Wednesday. "Running, cutting, sprinting -- getting a little stronger. ... Making hard cuts, sprinting a little faster. The progress is getting better and better each day. So I'm just going along with the program." The Falcons may be cautious and hold him out of organized team activities on May 21. He missed two games with a concussion in 2017 but ran for 865 yards on 196 totes with seven rushing scores. He also added 36 catches for 317 yards and another touchdown. Freeman will continue to be the lead back again in 2018, but Tevin Coleman will share touches with him and Atlanta also drafted Ito Smith in the fourth round for depth. Freeman is a low-end RB1.

Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman (knee) said he's doing well after dealing with MCL and PCL injuries at the end of the season. He recently received a second opinion on his knee, and he isn't expected to need surgery before the start of the next season. Freeman thinks there's a chance he'll be ready for the start of the offseason program, too. "But I'm going to take my time and let it heal so I won't have to deal with little knicks and knacks throughout the season, because that's the most important time for me. So I'm going to take my time and let it heal, get stronger. I need to be free when I'm out there," Freeman said. Expect the Falcons to play it cautious with their starting running back during organized team activities. Barring any setbacks, Freeman should once again be an RB1 in 2018, even with Tevin Coleman splitting repetitions.
