Report: Corey Coleman suffers broken hand in practice

CLEVELAND, OH - SEPTEMBER 18: Corey Coleman #19 of the Cleveland Browns breaks a tackle on his way to an 11-yard touchdown reception against Jimmy Smith #22 of the Baltimore Ravens in the first quarter at Cleveland Browns Stadium on September 18, 2016 in Cleveland, Ohio.

Browns rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman suffered a broken hand during practice on Wednesday, Cleveland.com reported.

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.

    The Browns are a joke, no doubt, but they’re not very lucky either.

    League needs to step in and eliminate all contact in NFL practices 365 days a year. This just shouldn’t happen.

    when it rains it pours. my beloved Browns cant catch a break.

    The Browns are just cursed this year. The football Gods are smiting Cleveland for drafting Manziel.

    Not even funny anymore. The pain just never ends for Cleveland. Condolences from a Ravens fan

    I feel for you Browns fans. This misery will end someday. I hope its soon.

    Didn’t JuJu Smith play through a broken hand last year?

    NFL re-alignment proposal:

    1. Move the Browns to AFC East.
    2. Move the Pats to AFC North.

    AFCN
    Ravens, Steelers, Pats, Bengals

    AFCE
    Browns, Dolphins, Bills, Jets

    Top 2 AFCN make the playoffs automatically… Winner of AFCE gets a $25 coupon to Walmart.

    Never thought this was possible BUT the Browns are cursed.

    Look at it this way. With a broken hand he will be much better than Braylon ‘Hands of Stone’ Edwards but much worse than Paul Warfield!

    Ok, enough. The Dawg Pound has suffered enough. Its time they start having something good go their way. Hang in their Dawg Pound.

    ++++++++++++++

    Pats fan here and I love the idea. Not only are the Pats .800 against the AFCN in the Belichick era in spite of only playing the top team in it 2 of every 3 years but we might finally get a respite from the whiny Bills and fish fans.

    So you rip off companies by withholding their deserved rebates. You get caught by the Feds and pay $90 million to stay out of jail. Now you buy a football team and we can’t catch a break. It’s called “reap what you sow”, “karma”, “what goes around comes around”. Sell the team, Jimmy….now. I HATE BEING A BROWNS FAN!!!!

    That would certainly work for me. Who wouldn’t rather play Miami and Buffalo and even the Jets twice a year rather than the Steelers, Ravens, AND Bengals twice each? Poor Brownies! I thought Romeo Crennel had bad luck one year when he had 16 guys on IR. Looks like this year’s team will equal or break that record. Oh well. Perhaps this FO can draft better than their predecessors. Of a total of 39 players drafted in the five-year period between 2010-2014 (inclusive), the current 53-man Browns roster sports a grand total of five (i.e. 13%) and two of those are currently serving suspensions. What’s even more telling is that of the SIX first-round picks the Browns made between 2011 and 2014 (inclusive), NONE of those are now with the team. I was figuring that 2016 would be a building year with 2017 (two first round picks and two second picks) being the “return to real competition” year. Looks like that’ll now slide to 2018. Too bad.

    I go to a lot of Colorado state games and I think Rashard “Hollywood” higgins has potential to be a good #2 receiver in the league.. excited to see him get an opportunity!

    Dang! The Browns are injuring themselves just so they don’t have get embarrassed playing in a game.

  20. jerruhjones says: Sep 21, 2016 7:42 PM

    Thanks for the curse, Modell.

  21. pfatalbert says: Sep 21, 2016 7:43 PM

    Get LeBron’s agent on the phone. Suit him up. Throw jump balls to him. Also, sign up Zydrunas Ilgauskas; he’s available and 7’3″. Unmarkable in the red zone! The Cavs won a championship so maybe some of their mojo could rub off on the Browns(?)

  22. dukeblue12 says: Sep 21, 2016 7:55 PM

    What should happen is Baltimore should be in the AFC East while Buffalo moves to the AFC North. Given Cleveland and Baltimore’s intertwined history, it’ll never happen, but that’s how it should be.

  23. amanistumor says: Sep 21, 2016 8:09 PM

    Sucks for the Brownies. While the Factory of Sadness used to be a joke, I just feel bad for their fans.

    On the flip side, it seems injuries are way up this year compared to past.

    Immediate Karma for the referee awarded touchdown last Sunday. The Ravens got jobbed.

  25. bassplucker says: Sep 21, 2016 9:52 PM

    It’s sad when both the Browns and the Bears are among the 3 or 4 worst teams in the league. All that tradition as founding franchises yet year after year they just can’t pull it together – and now getting slammed with serious injuries to their top players when they were so far behind the talent curve to begin with. The league is better when those teams are competitive but I don’t see that happening for either of them this year. Again.

  26. oldbrowndawg says: Sep 21, 2016 11:20 PM

    Yeah, your precious Rat Birds got “jobbed.” Like when their dudes piled on QB Josh McCown after he had clearly given himself up and got NO FLAG for it. And when the refs called a joke of a “taunting” penalty on Terrelle Pryor who, after catching a first down pass at the Rat Birds’ 10 yard line when all he was doing was trying to toss the ball to the ref and accidentally tapped a Raven crybaby on the shoulder. Can’t wait for the Steelers to shut your trap. Not in the habit of rooting for the Squealers, but this year I hope they trounce your Rat Birds TWICE and bang up a bunch of them in the process! Jobbed, indeed.
