Coleman has struggled to stay on the field in his first two seasons in the league missing 13 total games due to a pair of broken hand injuries. It has limited the amount of impact that has he has been able to make on the field in brief time with the Browns.

In the 2017 campaign, he played just nine games where he recorded 23 catches on 56 targets for 305 receiving yards. In addition, he had two touchdowns. This included topping 50 receiving yards four times while hauling at least five catches on four instances. In total, he has 56 career catches for 718 receiving yards and five touchdowns.
