The Atlanta Falcons are off to a 2-0 start in 2015, but it hasn’t come without some bumps and bruises along the way. Specifically, rookie running back Tevin Coleman, who had kicked the season off with some solid numbers, will apparently miss a "couple of weeks" with a fractured rib, per Adam Schefter of ESPN.
Schefter stated with the following tweet, that Coleman’s comeback timetable will depend on his pain threshold.
Updated: Falcons RB Tevin Coleman fractured a rib and is expected to miss a couple of weeks, depending on his pain threshold, per sources.
Through one full game and limited action in the second game, Coleman has rushed 29 times for 112 yards and a touchdown this season. It will likely be on RBs Devonta Freeman and Antone Smith to carry the load until Coleman can get back in action.
