WR - NYG
Week 17 Outlook
The Giants announced on Friday that wide receiver Corey Coleman tore his ACL during Thursday's practice. He is out for the season.
Coleman is a former first-round pick of the Browns who was with the Bills and Patriots before latching on with the Giants last season. He was a favorite to win the No. 3 wideout role in New York heading into the season, while also potentially returning some punts and kicks.
Giants beat writer Tom Rock is reporting WR Corey Coleman is officially active for Week 8.
Coleman, who was recently acquired by the Giants, will play in Week 8. While his role is unknown, it is safe to say he is not fantasy relevant for Week 8.
Former Browns' wide receiver and first-round pick Corey Coleman has been signed to the New York Giants' practice squad, according to ESPN's Jordan Raanan on Twitter.
Coleman was released by the Browns in training camp and signed on with the Patriots' practice squad early in the season, but he was unable to stick in New England, either. He has had multiple workouts this season but did not sign anywhere until he landed with the Giants on Thursday. He is on the practice squad for now, but with the Giants recently losing Cody Latimer to injured reserve and not having a proven third wide receiver on the roster, Coleman will surely have an opportunity to be added to the 53-man roster if he impresses in practice and can learn the offensive system.
ESPN's Field Yates is reporting the Patriots have released WR Corey Coleman.
I've lost count on the number of times Coleman has been on the NFL transaction wire in 2018 and were only in September. The former first-round pick will likely catch on with another club, but his career in the NFL moving forward appears grim.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport is reporting the New England Patriots have re-signed WR Corey Coleman to their practice squad.
A day following his release by the Patriots to make room for Josh Gordon, the Patriots have brought back Coleman as a practice squad asset. A former first-round pick, Coleman will avoid playing for his third team in two months and settle back in with New England. He'll have zero immediate fantasy value but is worth monitoring as the year progresses, especially if their wide receiver corps suffers any setbacks or injuries.
