Tweetcap of Dan Quinn's Monday press conference

FLOWERY BRANCH -- Falcons coach Dan Quinn said that running back Devonta Freeman had his right shoulder examined and will be limited in practice this week on Monday.

Also, defensive end Takkarist McKinley will also be limited in practice with an undisclosed injury. He appeared disoriented, but is not in the concussion protocol.

Freeman couldn't lift his right arm after he was blasted by Jets defensive back Juston Burris with 5:23 left in the game. A pass to Freeman in the left flat was incomplete, but Burris came up from the end zone and hit Freeman anyway.

After the play, team doctors looked at Freeman's shoulder and neck area checked on the sideline. Running back Tevin Coleman closed out the game in the 25-20 win over the New York Jets.

Here's a tweep cap of the press conference:
