Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman suffered a right hamstring strain in practice on Thursday.

“Hopefully, for him, it’s a quick turnaround,” first-year coach Dan Quinn said. “He’s such a passionate competitor. You can see how disappointed he was not to be able to finish today. So hopefully, we’ll get him back out here soon.”

Rookie running back Tevin Coleman, who is competing with Freeman for the starting job, has missed the past two days with a hamstring injury as well.

Undrafted rookie Terron Ward, veteran Antone Smith and second-year player Jerome Smith are the Falcons’ other running backs.
