Browns' Coleman to miss at least month with broken hand

The Browns received good news about some bad news Thursday morning: the broken hand rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman suffered in Wednesday's practice won't end his season. He stayed on the field the entire time but later went for an X-ray, which revealed the fracture.

On Sunday, Cleveland Browns first-round pick Corey Coleman had a break-out game, catching five passes for 104 yards and two touchdowns. That leaves rookie third-down draft pick Cody Kessler, who was third on the depth chart, to make his National Football League debut start on Sunday. During today's practice, Coleman broke his hand when a teammate came down on it after a catch.

There is no timetable on how much time Coleman could miss.

Despite losing starters along both the offensive and defensive lines and a top receiving target, not to mention going on his third starting quarterback in three weeks, Browns coach Hue Jackson isn't blinking. With Robert Griffin III now on injured reserve, they have three quarterbacks on the 53-man roster, with two of them being healthy.

Luckily for the Browns, Terrelle Pryor has seemed to be doing fairly well at the wide receiver position for them. Defensive lineman Carl Nassib also had surgery to fix a broken bone in one of his hands and will miss at least this week. As a result, Coleman is out for Sunday's game against the Miami Dolphins. A cavalcade of other rookies, Rashard Higgins, Jordan Payton and Ricardo Louis, are now in line for more action while the Browns await Josh Gordon's return from suspension in Week 5.
