Offseason workouts are non-contact by nature, but that doesn’t prohibit periodic contact with the football.

Via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com, Browns receiver Corey Coleman may be out of action until training camp opens after falling on a football last week during an OTA session.

“Right now I’m going to keep him out for a little while and again,” coach Hue Jackson said, “that was a tough spill for him. A little tougher than I thought but he’s making his way through. You know Corey. He wants to be back out there right now but I just think now is the time if a guy is kind of banged up a little bit to make sure they take care of him so that we get him back for training camp. But we’ll see how it all unfolds here at the end.”

Jackson said he doesn’t know when Coleman will be back, and that a decision will be made after consulting with team doctors.

NFL teams have no obligation to provide any injury information during the offseason or training camp, with the first requirement coming in the days preceding the first game of the regular season.

The Browns are counting on Coleman, a first-round pick in 2016, becoming the team’s No. 1 receiver in his second season. To get there, he’ll need to be available to play far more often than not.

As a rookie, Coleman missed six regular-season games due to injury. In 10 games he played, he caught 33 passes for 413 yards and three touchdowns.

    You can’t script the bad luck they have any worse than this.

    So the question becomes during the next CBA negotiation will the players union want not only no contact during OTAs but no actual footballs?

    Perhaps nerf footballs to be substituted for any kind of “dangerous drill”

    Lolz

    They’re just managing early injuries conservatively. There’s nothing all that important they’ll miss during OTAs.

    It’s not like he wasn’t warned about tucking the ball between his legs to try to secure it.

    Didn’t this also happen last year or did I just look into the future?

    Thank the CBA for this injury precaution crap now going on in OTAs. The teams are afraid to even sneeze on players for fear of having to fork over some serious dough.

    HarrisonHits2 sure does troll the Browns news a lot. Even the writeups that don’t make the front page. Get a life bro.
