Corey Coleman back practicing

Browns top draft pick Corey Coleman was back practicing Monday after having been held out since injuring his hamstring in a team scrimmage on Aug. 5.

BEREA,Ohio-- Besides the return of Josh Gordon to practice, another key wide receiver returned to the field.

Top draft pick rookie Corey Coleman was back practicing after not having participated since Aug. 5. Coleman caught three long passes in the Friday night scrimmage on Aug. 5 and felt a tweak in the hamstring and was held out since. Coleman took part in some individual drills on Sunday, but was in the team drills on Monday, leaving the possibility that Coleman could play against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night at FirstEnergy Stadium.

"We'll see," Hue Jackson said when asked if Coleman would play this week. "We'll see how he feels (after practicing) and get with the training staff."

Brush With Greatness: WR Andrew Hawkins said he was at a tryout for the CFL's Hamilton Tiger Cats back in the early 2000's and ran against Olympic sprinter Justin Gatlin. He said he didn't know who he was at the time, but he could "really run fast." Hawkins smiled and declined to comment when asked about Gatlin's football abilities.

Gatlin was the Silver medalist to Usain Bolt in the 100 meters on Sunday night at the Rio Olympics.

On the Side: WR Andrew Hawkins (hamstring), OL Joe Thomas (back) was on the field but not practicing. WR Terrelle Pryor (hand), WR Marlon Moore and WR Rashard Higgins (leg) were back practicing. QB Austin Davis (concussion) was not on the field. Others not practicing were: DB Trey Caldwell (hamstring), DL Nile Lawrence-Stample (shoulder), RB Glenn Winston. DL John Hughes and DB K'Waun Williams were still missing for personal reasons. 

Last Day: Monday's practice was the last practice open to the public and the players and coaches stayed later than usual to try to sign as many autographs as possible.
