Saints Rule Out WR Brandon Coleman for Playoff Game Vs Vikings

The Saints have ruled out No. 3 wide receiver Brandon Coleman for Sunday’s divisional-round playoff game at Minnesota with a neck injury, Mike Triplett of ESPN reports.

Coleman has quietly been a major contributor to the Saints’ offense this year as both a pass-catcher and a blocker (the Saints led the NFL in both yards per rush and yards per pass attempt). The 6-foot-6, 225-pounder caught 23 passes for 364 yards and three touchdowns in 16 games played. He has never missed a game because of injury in his three years as part of New Orleans’ active roster.

Coleman’s absence should mean a bigger role for fellow receiver Willie Snead, who has been less productive this season, with eight catches for 92 yards and no touchdowns in 11 games played.
