Freeman was ruled out for Sunday's game after missing practice this week.
Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman will miss Sunday's game against the Panthers due to a knee injury, the team announced Friday.
Freeman was ruled out for the Falcons home-opener after missing practice all week. The running back sustained the injury when he was hit late in the Falcons' 18-12 loss to the Eagles last week.
The 26-year-old recorded six carries for 36 rushing yards and 14 receiving yards on three catches in the season-opener.
Left guard Ben Garland will also miss Sunday's game due to a calf injury. Wide receiver Russell Gage is out with a knee injury. Rusher Tevin Coleman will play in place of Freeman.
The Falcons play the Panthers at 1:00 p.m. ET Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium.
