Tevin Coleman clears concussion protocol, will play Sunday

Big news for the Falcons.

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Brett Davis-USA TODAY Sports

For the first time in weeks, the Falcons will have both of their dynamic running backs healthy and ready to play. With Terron Ward also playing well, the Falcond should be able to run often and run well against the Saints on Sunday.

That's because Tevin Coleman has cleared the league concussion protocol, putting him on track to play. Devonta Freeman is coming off his best game of the season, but there should be plenty of work for Coleman, who played well against the Saints last time out.

Keep an eye on Julio, who should be returning on a limited basis tomorrow if he's going to play. It'll be great to have the Falcons almost fully healthy for a critical matchup against their most hated rival.
