NY Jets At Philadelphia Eagles Preseason: Kurt Coleman Returns Two Fumbles For TDs

Eagles rookie safety Kurt Coleman capped off a fine summer by recovering two fumbles and returning them for TDs in the Bird’s preseason finale against the Jets.

Coleman, who was a standout at training camp, amassed 18 tackles over the preseason and had one pass defense in addition to his two big plays tonight.

The Eagles drafted Coleman out of Ohio State in the 7th round of this year’s draft and so far the rookie has outplayed veterans Quintin Demps & Macho Harris. Right now he figures to be the primary backup to Quintin Mikell at SS and possibly the long term replacement.
