Browns WR Corey Coleman (broken hand) to miss 4-6 weeks

Thursday, September 22, 2016, 10:00am

PFT - [Full Article]

Browns announce WR Corey Coleman is expected to miss 4-6 weeks with broken hand.

Fantasy Impact:

Terelle Pryor probably serves as the WR1 for the next two weeks while Josh Gordon finishes his suspension. Pryor will be a sneaky play this week at Miami since he should see plenty of targets, but there are so many moving parts in Cleveland (with Cody Kessler at QB) that it's difficult to trust anyone.

Browns WR Corey Coleman breaks his hand in practice

Wednesday, September 21, 2016, 6:53pm

Cleveland.com - [Full Article]

The Browns suffered another huge blow Wednesday when first-round pick Corey Coleman broke his hand in practice, a league source told cleveland.com.

He broke the hand when he caught a pass and someone came down on the hand. Practice is only open to the media for the first 20 minutes and it happened after that.

It's not yet known how bad the break is or how long he'll be out. The Browns declined to confirm the report.

He underwent X-rays after practice, which confirmed the break.

Fantasy Impact:

It looks like Coleman will miss Week 3, at least. It's shaping up to be a very ugly offense that the Browns will field against the Dolphins on Sunday. They'll try to go run heavy with Isaiah Crowell (and Duke Johnson?) while keeping things simple for QB Cody Kessler. Terrelle Pryor will be a Sneaky Start in deeper formats with Gary Barnidge also getting a bump. But this is shaping up to be a dumpster fire best avoided, if possible.

Browns QB Josh McCown (left shoulder) did not practice Wednesday. McCown is expected to miss multiple games. Cody Kessler will start in the meantime.

Bears Beat: RB Jordan Howard 'showed real promise' and 'provided a spark' in Week 2

Bears beat writer was asked when RB Jordan Howard would win the RB1 job:

"Howard showed real promise in the preseason finale against the Browns, and I thought he provided a spark -- even if brief -- Monday night in the loss to the Eagles. The one thing Howard has done in limited playing time is show that he can catch the ball out of the backfield; that’s a real plus. I would not be surprised if Howard sees his role grow soon. KaDeem Carey can’t seem to stay healthy -- he was sidelined with a hamstring injury Monday night. I’d like to see Howard get 12 or more carries against the Cowboys and see how he does."

Fantasy Impact:

For owners looking to make a long-term play at running back, Howard is a quality stash as he tries to earn a regular role in the offense. Jeremy Langford (3.0 YPC) has been even worse on a per carry basis than last year (3.6 YPC), and although HC John Fox doesn't usually play rookies, Howard may be the exception. He is currently third on the depth chart behind Langford and KaDeem Carey, so this may not pan out.

Arrest warrant (paternity test) issued for Browns WR Josh Gordon

Wednesday, September 21, 2016, 12:27pm

Tia Ewing - [Full Article]

Cuyahoga Co. issues arrest warrant for Browns WR Josh Gordon over failure to take paternity test for an entire year.

Fantasy Impact:

This is unlikely to have an impact on Gordon's playing status this year, but it doesn't show much maturity to dodge a court-ordered paternity test for an entire year.

Report: Browns expected to start Cody Kessler Week 3

Monday, September 19, 2016, 2:24pm

Ohio.com - [Full Article]

Rookie quarterback Cody Kessler will start for the Browns (0-2) on Sunday when they visit the Miami Dolphins (0-2), ESPN reported Monday.

The Browns have yet to make an announcement.

Kessler would fill in for Josh McCown, who suffered a left shoulder injury Sunday in a 25-20 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

Fantasy Impact:

While this isn't a surprise given the news about McCown's shoulder, the Browns weren't sure if Kessler was ready or if they would need to bring in another option. Kessler, a third-round draft pick from the University of Southern California, would become the third quarterback to start for the Browns in as many games. Robert Griffin III started the Sept. 11 regular-season opener, but he suffered a fractured bone in his left shoulder in the 29-10 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.
