Lincoln Coleman, former NFL fullback, missing in Dallas, Texas area

Published

on

The Dallas Police Department has asked for help from the public in locating former Dallas Cowboys fullback Lincoln Coleman, 48, who has been missing since Friday. Coleman was described as having diminished mental capacity and could be in need of medical assistance, a bulletin from the Dallas Police Department said.

Coleman played only 18 games over a four-year NFL career but earned a Super Bowl ring with Dallas in 1994, when the Cowboys beat the Bills 30-13 in Super Bowl XXVIII.

Coleman developed a substance abuse problem, however, and was not re-signed after the 1994 season. He signed as a free agent with the Atlanta Falcons but never played. When his NFL career ended, Coleman spent four years in the Arena Football League. He went on to coach high school football in Michigan and Texas.

Six years ago, Coleman entered a Florida treatment center to try to kick the cocaine and alcohol addictions that shortened his career. He returned to Dallas and began a non-profit to help addicts.

Coleman went missing back in May 2017 as well. He had been living with his mother in Dallas, and she called police to assist in finding him. Coleman returned after seeing his photo on local TV. He told reporters he had been having some struggles and was staying at a homeless shelter.

Police said Coleman was last seen at about 4 p.m. Friday, in a silver Ford SUV. They asked that anyone with information contact the Dallas Police Department Missing Persons Unit.

Las Vegas Raiders activate offensive linemen Kolton Miller, Denzelle Good, Rodney Hudson, Gabe Jackson off COVID-19 list

Published

HENDERSON, Nev. — The Las Vegas Raiders on Saturday activated four starting offensive linemen who had close contact with right tackle Trent Brown earlier this week.

Left tackle Kolton Miller, left guard Denzelle Good, center Rodney Hudson and right guard Gabe Jackson came off the COVID-19 list Saturday but must still test negative for the virus on Sunday morning in order to play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

None of the four players have tested positive since going on the COVID-19 list this week as “high risk” close contacts to right tackle Trent Brown, who did test positive on Wednesday morning.

The four players were with Brown at practice on Monday. According to league protocol, as high risk contacts, they had to test negative for five consecutive days, plus the last day of contact.

Safety Johnathan Abram had contact with Brown on Tuesday, so there is not enough time for him to finish the protocol and play against Tampa Bay.

Brown was not wearing his tracking device, as mandated by NFL protocol, on Monday, so practice film had to be scoured to see who Brown had been close to that day.

Raiders coach Jon Gruden said Friday that Brown, who remains on the COVID-19 list, was feeling better.

With Miller, Good, Hudson and Jackson in self-isolation and joining the Raiders virtually this week to prepare, Las Vegas practiced with an offensive line of Brandon Parker, John Simpson, Andre James, Patrick Omameh and Sam Young. Left guard Richie Incognito remains on injured reserve.
