The report said someone landed on Coleman’s hand during practice. It did not note the severity of the injury or a potential timetable. The Browns confirmed the injury Wednesday evening and said Coleman was a full participant in practice.
The Browns have had awful luck for nearly two decades now and have had especially awful injury luck lately. They’ll start third-round rookie Cody Kessler at quarterback Sunday in Miami because opening day starter Robert Griffin III and backup Josh McCown are both injured. Center Cameron Erving was hospitalized after last week’s loss to the Ravens, and third-round rookie defensive end Carl Nassib also broke his hand last week.
Coleman, the No. 15 pick in last year’s draft, had five catches for 104 yards and two touchdowns last week.
The Browns drafted four wide receivers and all four remain on the roster, so if Coleman misses time Jordan Payton, Rashard Higgins and Ricardo Louis could see extended time and extra reps. Coleman and Terrelle Pryor have been starting at receiver for the Browns while Josh Gordon serves the rest of his suspension.
