Falcons RB Tevin Coleman (concussion) took full practice reps again Friday. Coleman has cleared the concussion protocol and was removed from the injury report, so he’ll play. His presence puts a dent in Devonta Freeman’s upside.

Divisional Round at Philadelphia Eagles
Tevin Coleman rushed for 23 yards on 11 carries while adding 2 catches for 14 yards on 2 targets in the Falcons’ Wild Card win over the Rams. Coleman’s biggest contribution came on a 3rd-and-9 play early in the third quarter when he caught a screen pass, slipped a tackle, and ran 14 yards for a first down. Atlanta capped the drive off with a field goal to extend its lead to 16-10.
Coleman has averaged just 22.3 rushing yards over his last four games and has clearly taken a backseat to Devonta Freeman in Steve Sarkisian’s offense. Coleman has always been Atlanta’s No. 2 back but his usage has dipped greatly since Freeman returned from a concussion in early December. Why Sarkisian doesn’t use Coleman more in the passing game is confusing but nevertheless, avoid using the back on Saturday when the Falcons visit the Eagles. He’s our No. 12 RB for the Divisional Round.
