Not long after running for a touchdown and starting off the game by rushing nine times for 32 yards, Falcons running back Tevin Coleman was hit in the ribs and wound up being carted off the field Sunday against the host Giants.

According to the Falcons' official Twitter account, Coleman -- a rookie third-round pick who had 20 carries for 80 yards in Week 1 -- was questionable to return.
