Falcons' Tevin Coleman: Role in offense could grow
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Atlanta wants to get Coleman more carries and feature him more in the passing game this season, the Falcons' official web site reports. He was used in a variety of passing routes Thursday in 11-on-11 drills.

Coleman has also been mentioned as a potential kick returner. Running backs coach Bobby Turner has said he'd like to reduce starter Devonta Freeman's carries in 2016 to keep him fresh. It's not clear how many touches per game Coleman will get in the backfield and he'll need to end his fumbling issues (3 lost fumbles in 12 games) to stay on the field. Still, the early buzz in training camp is that Coleman may have a larger role in the offense than many expected.

Falcons' Julio Jones: Tweaks something at practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Jones tweaked something at Thursday's practice, Vaughn McClure of ESPN.com reports.

Jones reportedly could have kept practicing, but there's no reason to push things at the very beginning of training camp. Coming off a 136-catch season, the 27-year-old superstar should be in line for another massive workload in a Falcons offense that still has shaky receiving talent behind him.

Falcons' Devin Fuller: Says he is healthy
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Fuller (hamstring) said he is healthy for the start of training camp, ESPN.com's Vaughn McClure reports.

A seventh-round pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Fuller missed June minicamp with a hamstring injury, but he's apparently made a full recovery. The Falcons released Devin Hester on Tuesday, leaving Fuller and Eric Weems as the leading candidates for work in the return game. Fuller ran a 4.39 40-yard dash at his pro day, but he didn't impress as a return man at UCLA, averaging 22.8 yards on 36 kick returns and 10.5 yards on 14 punt returns. Even with Hester no longer in the picture, Fuller may find himself fighting for a roster spot.
