The Cleveland Browns announced Monday that they’ve officially designated WR Corey Coleman to return from injured reserve.
This officially opens a three-week window of time for the Browns to add him to their active roster or he’ll spend the duration of the 2017 season on injured reserve.
Cleveland placed Coleman on injured reserve a few weeks into the season with a broken hand. The expectation was that it would cost him between 6-8 weeks, so he was an obvious candidate to be brought back from injured reserve.
Coleman, 23, is a former first-round pick of the Browns back in 2016. He’s currently in the second year of his four-year, $11.654 million contract and stands to make base salaries of $979,773 and $1.5 million over the next two years of the agreement.
In 2017, Coleman has appeared in two games and caught six passes for 62 yards receiving and one touchdown.
