In his first season with Carolina, Coleman served as a defensive catalyst and helped lead the Panthers to the Super Bowl. The 28-year-old safety led the team with a career-high seven interceptions and also made 90 tackles. With cornerback Josh Norman no longer a piece of the Panthers' secondary, Carolina seems to have fully invested in Coleman.
Kurt Coleman (foot) isn't listed on Wednesday's injury report, the Associated Press reports.
Coleman didn't play in Week 17 due to a mild foot sprain, but he's good to go for the Carolina Panthers ' playoff opener. On the season, he accrued 90 tackles and a team-high seven interceptions.
Kurt Coleman finished the 2015 regular season with 90 tackles (55 solo), seven interceptions, one sack, and one touchdown in 15 games played.
Coleman signed with the Carolina Panthers as a veteran free agent last offseason and flourished by reuniting with defensive coordinator Sean McDermott, who previously coached him in Philadelphia. After beating promising second-year player Tre Boston to become Carolina's starting free safety, Coleman went on to post the second-highest tackling total of his six-year career. While his 90 stops towered over last season's 37, Coleman's seven interceptions trailed only two players league-wide, an included a stretch of five straight games with a pick. With such outstanding production, Coleman enjoyed his best fantasy season yet, exceeding the Panthers' expectations to begin his two-year deal.
After putting in a limited practice Thursday, Coleman was unable to practice Friday, but he'll hope to be ready for the divisional round of the playoffs. In his absence, Tre Boston will likely see extensive action at free safety.
Kurt Coleman (foot) is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers, the Carolina Panthers ' official site reports.
Coleman only mustered one limited practice showing this week and is thus slated to concede free safety to either Tre Boston or Colin Jones in the season finale.
