Browns WR Coleman breaks hand during practice

Cleveland Browns rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman fractured his hand during practice on Wednesday.

According to — which first reported the injury — the team’s first-round draft pick broke his hand when he caught a pass and someone came down on it during practice.

“An X-ray late this afternoon on Corey Coleman’s hand revealed a fracture,” the team said in a statement. “He was a full participant in today’s practice. The injury is being further evaluated in order to determine when he will return to play.”

Coleman, a former Baylor standout drafted 15th by the Browns in this year’s draft, had a strong game on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. He caught five passes for 104 yards for two touchdowns.

The Browns have seen a rash of injuries on the offensive side of the ball. Quarterback Josh McCown suffered a shoulder injury and center Cameron Erving spent the night in the hospital after being diagnosed with a pulmonary contusion. Both those injuries occurred during Sunday’s game.

Cleveland also placed quarterback Robert Griffin III on injured reserve after Week 1 with a shoulder injury.
