Austin Hooper and Devonta Freeman out, Desmond Trufant in for Falcons - Panthers

The Atlanta Falcons have ruled out running back Devonta Freeman, tight end Austin Hooper and linebacker Kemal Ishmael for Sunday’s game against the Carolina Panthers. Additionally, cornerback Desmond Trufant will return, marking the first time since Week 5 that he’s been on the field.

Ishmael is a bit of a surprise, but Hooper and Freeman are expected to miss multiple weeks.

After suffering a foot sprain against the New Orleans Saints, running back Devonta Freeman will be absent Sunday when the Falcons take on the Panthers.
