The Colts looked hopeless last week in a 46-9 loss to the Rams. At one point, we legitimately believed that Scott Tolzien might break the record for pick sixes thrown in a game before he got benched for Jacoby Brissett. Would the Colts be any better this week with Brissett starting?
Yes. The Colts were in fact better with Brissett … to a point.
Brissett’s best moment came midway through the second half when he led the Colts downfield on a 76-yard field goal drive. He was a perfect 7-for-7 to start the drive, getting the Colts all the way down to the 11-yard line. But he couldn’t close the deal, following that with a pair of incomplete passes. The Colts had to settle for the field goal.
According to ESPN.com’s Pat McManamon, a source told ESPN’s Adam Schefter that Coleman had his hand heavily wrapped when he left the locker room. Coleman went through more tests on Monday, and the results confirmed that he broke his right hand once again.
What does this mean for Coleman? Coleman, a 2016 first-round draft pick, will miss a significant amount of games for the second time in his career. He sat out for six games in his rookie campaign after breaking his right hand. Now, he’ll miss more time after sustaining the same injury to the same hand. Coleman has 39 receptions to go along with 475 yards and four scores in his career.
What does this mean for the Browns? Cleveland and rookie quarterback DeShone Kizer will miss Coleman’s speed on the perimeter. The Browns did sign receiver Kenny Britt in the C. J. Prosise Jersey offseason, but he’s struggling with drops and creating separation.
The Browns already have a lack of fire power on offense, and Donnie Shell Womens Jersey Coleman’s injury makes matters worse. Cleveland will now have to depend on Britt, Rashard Higgins, and Ricardo Louis to step up their play.
