Former Indiana running back Tevin Coleman, now with the Atlanta Falcons, showed off the burst Hoosiers fans came to admire when he scampered 30 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter Sunday against the Chargers.

The touchdown was Coleman’s fifth of the season and gave Atlanta a 20-10 lead over San Diego.
Coleman played at Indiana from 2012-14, accruing 3,219 yards rushing and 28 touchdowns. In his final season in Bloomington, he rushed for a school-record 2,036 rushing yards and finished seventh in Heisman voting.
After that electric junior year, Coleman was drafted in the third round, 73rd overall, by the Falcons. He rushed for 392 yards and a touchdown during his rookie season, but he already has more than 200 yards and five scores in 2016 as the back-up to Devonta Freeman.
As of halftime Sunday, Coleman had 47 yards on seven carries during the game.
