Bellevue Police recommended felony hit-and-run charges for Seahawks RB Derrick Coleman stemming from an October accident.
Coleman left the scene of an accident which left another motorist with head injuries and a broken collarbone. He was found two blocks from the crash. The police allege Coleman smoked synthetic marijuana before the accident, and an open bag of "synthetic cannabinoids" was found in the car. Coleman's agents released a statement shortly after the accident claiming Coleman had simply fallen asleep and left the scene because he was disoriented. The case has now been turned over to the King County Prosecuting Attorney's Office to determine if Coleman will be charged. That process could take several weeks. Coleman was suspended one game by the Seahawks for the incident, and he will likely face more punishment from the league once the legal process plays out. Jan 26 - 8:57 AM

Derrick Coleman rushed five times for 10 yards Week 15 against the Browns.

Coleman started the game but was quickly jumped by both Christine Michael and Bryce Brown, who simply have more juice in their legs than the fullback. Coleman did not have a carry after the first quarter. He does not need to be owned in any format.

Seahawks coach Pete Carroll said Wednesday that FB Derrick Coleman remains "in the mix" for carries in Week 15 versus Cleveland.

It's another testament to the uncertainty in Seattle's decimated running game. Expect the Seahawks to continue to lean on white-hot Russell Wilson's arm to generate offense against the Browns' porous pass defense this week.

Seahawks declared FB Derrick Coleman, CB Marcus Burley, LB Nick Moody, OG Mark Glowinski, C Patrick Lewis, DE Demarcus Dobbs and DT Jordan Hill inactive for Week 7 against the 49ers.

It's a quiet list for this time of year. Will Tukuafu will clear running lanes in the absence of Coleman.

Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman (foot) will miss "at least" six weeks.

Coleman broke his foot in pre-game warmups ahead of Sunday's Week 7 tilt with the Rams. Look for Seattle to add a lead blocker for Marshawn Lynch. Robert Turbin was pressed into the role on Sunday. Coleman could go to I.R.

Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman broke his foot during pre-game warmups for Sunday's Week 7 loss at St. Louis.

Coleman somehow took a wrong step while warming up and suffered the fracture. The Seahawks were forced to use Robert Turbin as their fullback.
Mon, Oct 20, 2014 12:57:00 PM

Seahawks declared FB Derrick Coleman, RT Breno Giacomini, S Jeron Johnson, QB B.J. Daniels, T Caylin Hauptmann, DE Benson Mayowa, and DT Jordan Hill inactive for Monday night's Week 8 game against the Rams.

Coleman is out with a hamstring injury. Giacomini should be back from a knee issue in a couple weeks. All three of Golden Tate (shoulder), Bobby Wagner (ankle), and Christine Michael (illness) are active, as expected.
Mon, Oct 28, 2013 07:23:00 PM

Coach Pete Carroll said FB Derrick Coleman (hamstring) could be out 4-6 weeks.

Coleman sustained a severe pull during the Week 7 win over the Cardinals. The Seahawks have brought back old friend Michael Robinson to lead block for Marshawn Lynch.
Wed, Oct 23, 2013 08:19:00 AM

Seahawks FB Derrick Coleman was forced from Seattle's Week 7 game against the Cardinals with a hamstring injury, and will not return.

With Spencer Ware inactive, it leaves the Seahawks with no fullbacks. Coleman collapsed on the sideline after making a catch, and could be sidelined multiple weeks.
Thu, Oct 17, 2013 10:09:00 PM

Vikings waived RB Derrick Coleman, LB Solomon Elimimian, WR Bryan Walters, WR A.J. Love, WR Kamar Jorden, WR Kerry Taylor, G/T Levi Horn, OT Bridger Buche, CB Corey Gatewood, DT Tydreke Powell, OG Grant Cook, LB Tyler Nielsen, CB Chris Stroud, DE Anthony Jacobs and DE Ernest Owusu.

An undrafted free agent out of UCLA, Coleman could take the ball just 50 yards on 19 preseason carries. Elimimian is a former CFL standout, but was slowed by a hamstring injury. A long-time practice-squad player in Chicago, Horn might be at the end of the line.
