Former Auburn offensive tackle Shon Coleman isn't likely to forget Sunday.

In a 28-26 loss to Tennessee, the Cleveland Browns rookie offenisve tackle saw his first NFL action.

Per Cleveland.com, Coleman "had four snaps on offense, mostly as an extra lineman."

A Memphis native, Coleman overcame a battle with cancer to become a starter at Auburn in 2014 and 2015. This spring, he was drafted by the Browns in the third round. He inked a four-year contract worth $3.13 million.

Coleman had MCL knee surgery after the 2015 season and is only now back to 100 percent. He had been active the past couple weeks, but did not see any action until Sunday.
