Cleveland fears wide receiver Corey Coleman broke a bone in his hand in an injury similar to one he suffered last season, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported. Coleman missed six weeks with a broken hand in 2016.
The injury comes after Browns quarterback DeShone Kizerreturned to the game against Baltimore in the third quarter after dealing with a migraine. Hue Jackson said Kizer was checked for a concussion and was cleared. Jackson says the migraine developed during the game. "I could just tell something was going on," Jackson said.
