With Devonta Freeman in concussion protocol, Falcons sign running back Terrence Magee

ATLANTA – With Devonta Freeman currently in the league's concussion protocol, the Falcons added another running back to its active roster – Terrence Magee.

Magee originally signed with the Baltimore Ravens as an undrafted free agent following the 2015 NFL Draft. He then spent time on bouncing around the Cleveland Browns, Los Angeles Rams and Seattle Seahawks' practice squads.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn said the following regarding the status of Freeman for Monday's game against the Seattle Seahawks:

"I won't rule him out until they say he's ruled out," Quinn said. "We're going to do the very best looking out for him. I can promise you that. But until they say that, then I'll lean on that way. But until that time comes, nothing from my end to report."

The Falcons will rely on Tevin Coleman and Terron Ward to carry the load if Freeman is sidelined come Monday night.

And Quinn has all the confidence in them both.

"It was good to get Tevin extended play time, so for him to get 20 carries in a game, I thought it was a good deal for him to show I can handle that load when needed to," Quinn said. "We knew we could lean on Tevin in that way and we'll continue to do so until Free comes back. But Ward is somebody that we've counted on for three years now. When his number gets called, he's a guy that likes to answer the bell and answer the challenge. He's always been one of our most prepared players."
