Rookie WR Coleman to miss Browns' first exhibition game

BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns will be without Corey Coleman, their top rookie receiver for their first exhibition game against Green Bay.

Coleman, who hasn't practiced since catching three long passes from Robert Griffin III in a scrimmage last week, will miss Friday night's game with a hamstring injury, according to coach Hue Jackson.

The 15th overall selection in the draft said he felt his hamstring pull during the scrimmage at the team's facility in Berea.

Veteran receiver Andrew Hawkins also won't play against the Packers while dealing with a hamstring injury.

Receiver Terrelle Pryor was pulled from Wednesday's practice with an apparent calf injury, but no decision has been made about his status for Friday's exhibition.

The Browns will travel to Green Bay on Thursday.
