Browns activate Corey Coleman for Week 11
- The Cleveland Browns announced that they had activated WR Corey Coleman from injured reserve on Thursday, whilst waiving fellow receiver Kasen Williams in a corresponding move. Coleman is expected “to have a full workload on Sunday” per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
- Coleman showed promise at the beginning of the season, generating a passer rating of 101.3 when targeted and a receiving grade of 73.5 before suffering a broken hand in the Browns’ 24-10 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in Week 2.
- Coleman was particularly impressive against the Pittsburgh Steelers, achieving a game grade of 83.5 which was fifth best by a receiver in Week 1. He caught all five of his targets, three of which came against former Browns cornerback Joe Haden, whose game grade of 41.6 remains his lowest of the year so far.
- Cleveland will be keen to see Coleman return, as none of their wide receivers rank inside the top 100 at the position in overall grade through ten weeks. Running back Duke Johnson Jr. currently leads the Browns in targets (52), receptions (42) and yards (358), while his 1.77 yards per route run is also the best mark on the team.
