The sophomore back is a little nicked up.

We expect big things out of Tevin Coleman this year but not at Wednesday's practice. He was held out of practice day after getting nicked up yesterday.

Falcons coach Dan Quinn spoke to the media and said it was nothing to worry about. The Falcoholic's Jeanna Thomas, who is covering training camp, got the news from Quinn.

Coleman, of course, had an injury-plagued rookie season that started with a hamstring injury in training camp. He was named starter last offseason but fell behind Devonta Freeman, later suffered from some cracked ribs, and had a bad concussion when he slipped in the shower.

He missed four games and was limited to only 87 carries in 2015. This injury appears to be very minor but Coleman will need to stay healthier than last season if he wants to take away snaps from Freeman.
