Report: Indiana RB Tevin Coleman not working out at combine

Tuesday February 17th, 2015

Former Indiana running back Tevin Coleman will not participate in any drills at the upcoming NFL Scouting Combine, reports NFL Network's Gil Brandt. Coleman is still recovering from a foot injury that has left him in a walking boot as of Monday and unable to perform any of the workouts in Indianapolis. 

The 6'1", 210-pound running back was out for the final three games of the regular season with an ankle injury, although he is still considered one of the top prospects at the running back position in this class.

Despite missing three games, Coleman had a strong season for an Indiana team that finished 4-8, rushing for 2,036 yards and 15 touchdowns, cementing himself as one of the best running backs in the nation. He became the first player in Indiana history and the 18th player in FBS history to eclipse 2,000 rushing yards in a season.

Coleman was also named a first-team All-American by the Associated Press, Sports Illustrated and Walter Camp.
