From Mark Wimer's Monday injury report (Mon Nov 17): Smith suffered an apparently serious knee injury during the game at Carolina - no official word is out yet, but he may be done for the season.

General News (Tue Nov 18): is out for the remainder of the season with a broken leg, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Week 12: vs Cleveland Browns

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. For those not in touch with the NFC South race, Atlanta just pulled into first in that division due to a two-game winning streak, even though they sit at an uninspiring 4-6 this season (so are the Saints, who Atlanta defeated earlier in the year). Steven Jackson posted 17/41/0 rushing with 2/6/0 receiving at Carolina last week in his most recent so-so showing, while Devonta Freeman was second on the squad with 6/28/0 rushing at Carolina. For better or worse, the Falcons are feedinj Jackson a high-teens number of touches each week on a consistent basis. The Browns beat up the Bengals with their running backs two games ago, while holding the Bengals to 22/86/0, but they were trampled by the Texans' backups last Sunday (54/213/0 rushing) en route to a 23-7 loss. To date the Browns are ranked 30th in the NFL averaging 142.1 yards rushing allowed per game, with seven rushing scores given up to date. They took a big step back in this phase of the game last weekend. Two so-so units meet in this contest - we think the Falcons have a slight edge in this phase of the game.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 10 vs TB (4 / 3 / 0 rush, 0 / 0 / 0 / 0 rec)

Opposing teams have seen enough tape on Smith that there seems to be a heightened urgency to track the runner and wrap him. Even so, Smith still runs hard and is a difficult "tackle" for defenders despite minimal yardage on the day.

2014 Week 11 vs CAR (0 / 0 / 0 rush, 1 / 1 / 3 / 0 rec)

The big-play weapons from the Falcons' first half of the season has been found out by defenses and the Panthers were all over Smith when he touched the ball. He didn't see the ball much this week.

Falcons | Antone Smith out for the year (Mon Nov 17, 02:39 PM) - Atlanta Falcons RB Antone Smith (leg) is out for the remainder of the season with a broken leg, according to head coach Mike Smith.

Our View: It was fun while it lasted. Smith was a hotter fantasy play earlier this year as he seemed to be breaking off big plays regularly on a part-time basis. This injury negatively impacts his dynasty value as well. With Smith on the sidelines, we could see a larger role for rookie Devonta Freeman.
