FLOWERY BRANCH, GA. — There does not seem to be any long-term concern for Atlanta Falcons running back Tevin Coleman, who sat out Wednesday’s training camp session. Head coach Dan Quinn cleared up the reason for his absence after practice:

“Tevin Coleman had a slight roll of his foot yesterday,” Quinn said. “He’s doing fine. He’s going to be doing rehab today [Wednesday] and could be back in a limited fashion tomorrow or the following day,” said Quinn.

There’s another small issue adding measure to Coleman’s foot injury.

“He had a blister there, too, that compounded it,” the Falcons head coach said. “He’s had a great camp. I envision him being back in this thing really quick. Nothing more than me using precautionary to get him right back to really being able to go for it.”

Coleman has been a bright spot in camp and looked to be on his way to a larger role in 2016 after rushing for 392 yards and a touchdown on 87 carries last season.

Julio Jones also missed time over the last week due to what Quinn called “precautionary” reasons after a slight tweak. The All-Pro receiver returned to practice in full Tuesday and looked great.

The Falcons’ coaching staff seems to be handling early camp nicks and tweaks with a boatload of caution.
