Two offensive stars may be limited in practice Wednesday when the Atlanta Falcons hit the practice field for the first time to prepare for their Week 10 matchup versus the Dallas Cowboys.

In his Monday afternoon press conference, head coach Dan Quinn said running back Devonta Freeman may be limited Wednesday but isn’t expected to miss Sunday’s home game against Dallas. Quinn was tight-lipped about the running back’s injury, not giving out any information except that it wasn’t a shoulder issue.

Quinn said Julio Jones definitely “will be limited” through practice sessions this week. He hasn’t met with trainers yet to get the full extent of Jones’ injury status, but said the wide receiver “definitely” battled through a lower leg injury Sunday when the team played in Carolina.

The Falcons are 4-4 and have only one once in their last five games after starting the season 3-0. Atlanta hosts Dallas at 4:25 p.m. ET in Mercedes-Benz Stadium on Sunday.
