Browns rookie Coleman breaks hand in latest blow to offense
The Cleveland Browns just cannot get any good news this season and it continued as rookie receiver Corey Coleman broke his hand during practice.
After losing their top two quarterbacks in consecutive weeks to start the NFL season, the Browns offense was dealt another huge blow on Wednesday when Coleman, who leads the team with seven receptions for 173 yards and two touchdowns through two games, broke his hand.
X-rays after practice confirmed the break, the team announced.

There is no timetable on how much time Coleman could miss. He was not listed on Wednesday's injury report.
Coleman was coming off a breakout game against the Baltimore Ravens with five catches for 104 yards and two scores.
The Browns lost starting quarterback Robert Griffin III in the season opener with an injured left shoulder.
Veteran Josh McCown, last season's starter, also injured his left shoulder last Sunday.
Starting center Cam Erving suffered a bruised lung in the 25-20 loss to the Ravens.
Rookie defensive end Carl Nassib had surgery this week after breaking his hand.
Without Coleman, the Browns will lean on sixth-year receiver Terrelle Pryor, who has six receptions for 100 yards, until Josh Gordon returns from suspension in week five.
The Browns (0-2) face the Miami Dolphins (0-2) on Sunday.
