NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, citing a source, reported that Coleman saw a specialist on Sept. 22, and although he won't need surgery, he is expected to be out of action for four to six weeks.

"He was injured when he caught a pass and someone came down on the hand," according Cleveland.com's Mary Kay Cabot. "Practice is only open to the media for the first 20 minutes, and it happened after that."


Coleman Among League's Most Promising Rookies 

The Browns selected Coleman with the No. 15 overall pick in this year's draft, and the Baylor product arrived with elevated expectations following a tremendous final collegiate season. He tallied 1,363 receiving yards and 20 touchdown catches and won the Biletnikoff Award as the nation’s best wide receiver.

Coleman gives the Browns a vertical threat, and they have missed him dearly. Thus far, he has tallied seven catches for 173 yards and two touchdowns.
