“I’ve got to keep on working and keep getting back into the rhythm of being a running back,” Coleman said. “Coming off injury, it’s hard. There’s a lot of things you have to do to make sure that (the hamstring) is right for a fast guy.”
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.”
