You can’t make this stuff up.
The Cleveland Browns have yet to play a game in 2017 and have already taking their first L when Core Coleman, one of the team’s best young players, suffered an injury that would only happen to a Browns player.
Coleman, the very first draft pick of the team’s overhauled front office last offseason, reportedly fell on a football and could miss the rest of OTAs. The team is hoping he will be healthy enough when mandatory full-squad minicamp begins on June 13th.
The incident happened when Coleman caught a deep pass from QB Brock Osweiler and fell hard with new Browns defensive back Jason McCourty on top of him. Coleman reportedly stayed down for an extended period while being attended to by a trainer and walked slowly off the field and into the locker room.
Browns head coach Hue Jackson spoke to the media about his WR’s injury:
This comes less than a year after Coleman broke his hand during practice, causing him to miss significant time during the regular season.
