Coleman had split time with Devonta Freeman before his injury. He’s the faster of the two running backs and also had been more productive as a runner in the red zone.
Coleman scored a two-yard touchdown in the third quarter. After Freeman rushed for eight and four yards to set up a first down at Arizona’s four-yard line, the Cardinals stuffed him for two yards on the next play. Coleman replaced Freeman and plunged into the end zone to extend the lead to 23-13 before the extra point.
“My hamstring felt good,” Coleman said. “I’ve just got to get back into the routine of things.”
