Atlanta Falcons running back Devonta Freeman is battling a bone contusion on his foot and his availability for Week 6 is in doubt, a source told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport.

Freeman sat out practice Wednesday because of a foot injury. The 26-year-old missed three games earlier this season due to a knee issue. He returned to the lineup in the Falcons' Week 5 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, but was used sparingly.

Freeman rushed for 68 yards on 14 carries in his only two appearances of the campaign. Tevin Coleman and rookie Ito Smith have handled most of the backfield duties during his absence.

Atlanta will take a 1-4 record into Sunday's meeting with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
