Browns

Corey Coleman’s broken hand confirmed

The defenses lighten up in the coming weeks, but the task does not appear to get any easier for DeShone Kizer and the offense. Corey Coleman’s nickname might just become Mr. Glass as the Cleveland Browns spent the weekend celebrating their unbreakable Joe Thomas hitting 10,000 consecutive snaps. Coleman has suffered yet another injury as ESPN’s Josina Anderson has confirmed his hand was broken during the Week 2 contest against the Baltimore Ravens.

Coleman had a metacarpal fracture in practice during his rookie season just after the Cleveland Browns Week 2 against the Baltimore Ravens. He wound up missing the next six games. He also had suffered a sports hernia injury his last year at Baylor, which required offseason surgery to repair. For the 2017 season, Coleman had pulled his hamstring and missed three of those exhibitions.

Coleman was expected to lead the Browns receiving group in 2017, and it appeared he would after collecting five receptions for 53 yards and a touchdown in Week 1 against the Pittsburgh Steelers on just six targets. However, a dose of reality hit against a tough Raven defense in Week 2 as he was limited to just one reception for nine yards despite being targeted seven times.

The Browns have received little-to-nothing from new receiver additions Sammie Coates and Kenny Britt. It will be up to them, Rashard Higgins, and Ricardo Louis (perhaps Kasen Williams is recalled from the practice squad) to step up in the passing game. Otherwise, defenses can focus on shutting down the tight ends (Seth DeValve and David Njoku) along with Duke Johnson.

With the Browns traveling to Indianapolis this week to take on the Colts, there will be opportunities. The question is if any of the players on the roster can take advantage.

There is no timetable yet announced for how many games he might miss due to his most recent fractured hand.

    That tweet, though: “I am told it is confirmed . . . per source.”

  • mgbode

    Yeah, should have been “A source tells me it is confirmed” or whatever but the odds of him breaking his freaking hand before Week 3 two years in a row is…

  • BenRM

    His hand is made of chicken bones. It’s why he’s so fast.

    I like to imagine that a source informed her that she was told that something was confirmed.

    Sashimetrics says the time to extend Coleman’s contract is at peak Browns now.

    OMG STOP IT

  • Garry_Owen

    I can’t stop, and won’t stop. This is my new “Browns 2017 Gif of Gifs.”

  • CBiscuit

    So what you’re saying is the source is Crazy Joe Davola?

  • CBiscuit

    At the risk of pulling back the curtain on the GIF…this was on our local LA news last year. The reporter asked the little boy who was starting kindergarten if he missed his mom. A quick “no” was met with the instant follow up tears, telling otherwise.

  • Garry_Owen

    I don’t know for a fact who the source is, but I was told, per my own source, that the source was overheard yelling “sic semper tyrannis!” at the top of his lungs – though this has yet to be confirmed, per sources.

  • Garry_Owen

    So it’s your fault.

  • jpftribe

    This team has a serious issue scouting and evaluating receivers. Even if you chalk Coleman up to bad luck, they have had nothing for years, and guys cut go on to have success.

  • RGB

    So, we’re destined to cruise along at just enough suckitude to avoid The Gif?

  • Garry_Owen

    I can’t claim to know what destiny holds.
