FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. – After suffering a concussion in Atlanta's Week 14 win over the New Orleans Saints, Falcons running back Tevin Coleman remains in the league's concussion protocol.
Coleman is a not only a threat running the ball, but a proven commodity in the passing game. The third-year running back has combined for 838 yards of total offense and seven touchdowns so far this season.
After a weekend off, the Falcons were back at work on Tuesday without Coleman and starting guard Andy Levitre practicing. Levitre missed the Falcons' previous game with a triceps injury with Ben Garland filling in for him.
"Tevin Coleman is in the concussion protocol and Andy Levitre we held today as well," Falcons coach Dan Quinn. "All signs are looking good to the focus, the energy and health of the team."
The first injury report of the week will be released on Thursday.
