The Atlanta Falcons have seemingly paid a heavy price for their shock win over the New Orleans Saints on Sunday.

Breakout tight end Austin Hooper is expected to miss time with a knee injury he sustained during the game, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. An MRI will determine exactly how long he'll be sidelined.

Additionally, running back Devonta Freeman will also undergo an MRI to reveal the severity of a foot sprain that forced him to exit Atlanta's 26-9 victory, according to Rapoport.

Hooper is tied for the most catches (56) and touchdowns (six) among all tight ends this season.

Freeman, though, is in the midst of his worst year as a pro. He's averaging just 3.5 yards per carry and has yet to find the end zone as a runner.

The Falcons will travel to Carolina to face the Panthers for their second straight divisional clash in Week 11.
