Coley took over as the primary kickoff returner in Sunday's 23-10 win over Green Bay and had one return for 19 yards. He also played 16 snaps on offense, but didn't have a ball thrown his way.
Jerick McKinnon was removed from kickoff duties since he's emerged as the primary running back after Dalvin Cook's season-ending knee injury. Coley has also moved ahead of Rodney Adams for the No. 6 receiver role. However, he won't have a viable role on offense in that role.
Coley had four receptions for 76 yards in Sunday's preseason win over San Francisco.
Coley has 13 receptions for 160 yards this preseason. It looks like both he and Rodney Adams, both rookies, could make the final roster as depth receivers.
Coley had three receptions for 67 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Buffalo.
Coley, a 2017 seventh-round draft pick, played with the second and third string offense and made a strong impression with several nice catches. He's a longshot to win a roster spot, but Thursday's performance may have give him a better chance to win a final receiver spot.
