​A potentially scary situation has been resolved in Dallas, Texas involving a former Cowboys running back Lincoln Coleman.

Dallas Police Department announced on Tuesday that they have located former running back Lincoln Coleman safe and sound.​ Coleman had been missing since last Friday, and he will likely need medical assistance.

Coleman's family said that he has been dealing with multiple health issues attributed to his NFL career, including dementia, perhaps due to upwards to eight concussions suffered during his career.

This is not the first time Coleman went missing, as the same incident happened this past May. He later returned to his mother's house.

Coleman is best known for his time with the Cowboys from 1993-1995, where he rushed for 312 yards and three touchdowns on 98 carries. In 1993, he played a significant role for the Cowboys in their Thanksgiving game against the Miami Dolphins. Later that year, Dallas won the Super Bowl.

Coleman developed a drug and alcohol problem after being cut by the Cowboys in 1995. However, Coleman successfully completed rehab and has been clean for five years.

Coleman is living with the pains and rigors of life after football. However, he is now home safe and sound with his family.
