The Cleveland Browns have placed WR Corey Coleman on injured reserve with a broken hand.
- The Browns also signed DL Tyrone Holmes and WR Jordan Leslie to their practice squad and released DB Najee Murray and DB Channing Stribling from the unit.
This shouldn’t come as a big surprise, considering that Coleman is expected to miss 6-8 weeks with this injury.
The Browns could still bring Coleman back from injured reserve later on in the year, but this move will cost him the next eight games.
Last year, Coleman suffered a broken hand after the second game and he wound up missing the next six games.
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.
This season, Coleman has appeared in two games and caught six passes for 62 yards receiving and one touchdown.
