Wideout Corey Coleman will have the chance to lead the Browns' passing attack. Ok, fine, maybe that's not exactly the most appealing thing in the world, but at least he'll have a slew of targets sent his way. That is, if he can stay healthy. Coleman fell on a football during OTAs and suffered a chest injury, then reportedly had a sore hamstring in early June. This after breaking his hand during a practice last season, causing him to miss two months. The potential is there for Coleman -- he's one of the fastest players in the league and should be locked into playing every down for a team that, let's face it, probably will have to throw 35-plus times per week. But because of his proneness to random practice injuries and being in Cleveland, he'll likely get passed over through the first 100 picks of every draft. After that, the value is just too rich to pass up Coleman.
Coleman is tending to a shoulder injury in addition to his sore hamstring, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. Coleman reportedly sustained both injuries during an awkward fall in OTAs. We previously knew about the hamstring issue, but we also knew there was a separate, undisclosed injury. In any case, it sounds like the 2016 first-rounder should be available from the start of training camp, although he might be limited at first.
Head coach Hue Jackson said Tuesday that Coleman is "close" to making a return to practice, Scott Petrak of the Elyria Chronicle-Telegram reports. However, Jackson didn't relay the nature of Coleman's injury. In the midst of OTAs in May, Coleman sustained an undisclosed injury when he fell hard on a ball. Shortly thereafter, Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer reported that Coleman was tending to a sore hamstring and another unknown injury. However, Jackson's comment places a cloud over the wideout's status. As the offseason program winds down, Coleman rode a stationary bike Tuesday, suggesting Jackson may be a bit optimistic with the second-year player. In any case, expect Coleman to be ready by the time training camp kicks off in late July.
Coleman could be sidelined until late July with a sore hamstring, Cleveland.com reports. Along with the sore hamstring, the report also mentions an additional injury Coleman may be dealing with. But his hamstring is something to keep an eye on, as Coleman has suffered soft tissue injuries in the past, including last season. He's still expected to be ready for the start of training camp, however.
Coleman (undisclosed) had a "tougher spill than thought," according to head coach Hue Jackson, and the team hopes to have him back for the start of training camp, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports. The second-year wideout suffered an undisclosed injury after falling hard on a ball earlier in OTAs, so the team will take the cautious route with him for now. With that, Coleman may not be back on the field until training camp gets underway. According to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal, Jackson confirmed that Coleman did not suffer any broken bones from his fall and that the team merely does not want to risk any further aggravation at this point in the offseason. Barring a change in Coleman's status, he figures to be ready to go when the team starts training camp.
Coleman will likely sit out and rest this week after falling down hard on a ball during practice, Cleveland.com reports. His unspecified injury doesn't appear to be serious, but the Browns are playing it safe with their talented wideout. With Terrelle Pryor now in Washington, Coleman is expected to assume the top receiver role in head coach Hue Jackson's offense this season, with newly acquired Kenny Britt lining up alongside him.
