  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Gets 18 touches in Houston

    Coleman rushed 16 times for 67 yards and caught two of three targets for three yards in Sunday's 21-14 win over Houston.

    Coleman led the Jets' backfield in carries and rushing yards, though Ty Johnson and practice squad elevation Austin Walter combined for 80 rushing yards on 15 carries, including a two-yard Walter touchdown run late in the first half. Coleman performed decently as the leading option in a crowded backfield with Michael Carter (ankle) on IR, and he should maintain that role in Week 13 against the Eagles.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Should get bigger role sans Carter

    Coleman and Ty Johnson are both expected to fill larger roles out of the Jets backfield beginning with Sunday's game against the Texans after lead back Michael Carter (ankle) was placed on injured reserve Saturday, Al Iannazzone of Newsday reports.

    Carter will be sidelined for at least three games after being deactivated, though his estimated recovery timeline bodes well for his chances of being ready to play when first eligible Week 15 at Miami. In any case, his absence for the next three games should create more opportunities for Johnson and Coleman, with the former expected to handle a more heightened change-of-pace role while the latter likely settles in as the Jets' preferred option on early downs. If that's the case, Coleman might end up getting more carries of the two, but the Jets' tendency to play from behind in games could call for more pass-heavy game scripts that are more favorable for Johnson.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Carter injury presents opportunity

    Coleman rushed five times for 16 yards and caught his lone target for two yards in Sunday's 24-17 loss to the Dolphins.

    Coleman posted a forgettable stat line, but it's noteworthy that Ty Johnson only got one rushing attempt to Coleman's five, because starter Michael Carter exited the game with an ankle injury. If Carter's forced to miss additional time, Coleman would likely take over as the primary early-down running back for the Jets in an appetizing Week 12 matchup with the Texans.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Six touches in return

    Coleman (hamstring) rushed four times for 29 yards and caught two of three targets for four yards in Sunday's 45-17 loss to Buffalo.

    Despite ripping off a 15-yard run -- the Jets' longest of the game -- on his first touch back following a four-game absence, Coleman finished third among New York's running backs with six touches, trailing Michael Carter (20) and Ty Johnson (seven). Coleman and Johnson should continue to share the work left over behind Carter in Week 11 against the Dolphins and beyond, but Johnson's superior pass-catching ability gives him greater upside than Coleman.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Back from four-week absence

    Coleman (hamstring) is active for Sunday's game against the Bills.

    Coleman had been sidelined for the past four weeks with the hamstring injury, missing three contests in total following the open date in the Jets' schedule Week 6. Though he was listed atop the depth chart to begin the season, Coleman hasn't played more than 25 percent of the Jets' offensive snaps in any of his four appearances before missing time with the injury. Coleman will likely have to settle for limited work behind Michael Carter and Ty Johnson now that he's healthy again.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Questionable but likely to play

    Coleman (hamstring) is listed as questionable but expected to play Sunday against the Bills, Rich Cimini of reports.

    Coleman was a full participant in practice Friday, so it looks like he's finally over the hamstring injury that's kept him sidelined since Week 5. He'll likely work in a rotational role with Michael Carter and Ty Johnson, though Carter's expected to see the majority of snaps between the three running backs.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Should play Sunday

    Coach Robert Saleh said Friday that Coleman (hamstring) "looks good" to play Sunday versus Buffalo.

    The veteran tailback hasn't seen the field since Week 5 due to the hamstring injury, but it appears he'll be available for this weekend's divisional matchup. Rookie Michael Carter has taken control of the Jets' backfield work while Ty Johnson has worked in a complementary role, so Coleman is likely looking at a modest workload in his return.

  • Jets' Tevin Coleman: Practices in limited fashion
