Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman will have an MRI on Monday to determine the extent of his foot injury, NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported.
Freeman initially was diagnosed with a foot sprain following the Falcons’ 26-9 upset in New Orleans on Sunday.
He rushed 10 times for 38 yards and caught three passes for 10 yards and did not play in the second half against the Saints.
Freeman, 27, has rushed for 371 yards and no touchdowns in nine starts this season, adding 38 catches for 282 yards and three scores.
Backup Brian Hill would be in line to start Sunday at Carolina if Freeman can’t go. Hill, 24, rushed for 61 yards on 20 carries and caught a 10-yard touchdown pass against New Orleans.
