Browns rookie wideout Corey Coleman will miss four to six weeks with a broken hand, the team announced on Thursday morning.
Coleman saw a hand specialist after sustaining the fracture during Wednesday’s practice, and the specialist determined Coleman would not require surgery.
Coleman reportedly caught a pass during practice and another player landed on his hand.
He had quickly emerged as one of the team’s top receivers, catching five passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns in his second career game last week and drawing eight targets. Coleman, the No. 15 pick in this year’s draft, had been starting alongside Terrelle Pryor, and leaves a major hole in a depleted passing game.
The Browns have lost several players to injury this season, including quarterback Robert Griffin III and backup quarterback Josh McCown. Third-round pick Cody Kessler is slated to start at quarterback during in week’s game against Miami.
