Cleveland Browns receiver Corey Coleman was not indicted after his alleged involvement in an assault at the Pinnacle Condominiums in Cleveland on Dec. 31, 2016.

His brother, Jonathan Coleman, 25, and Jared Floyd, 24, both of Dallas, Texas, were indicted on one count each of felonious assault, a second-degree felony.

Per the indictment issued Tuesday morning, courtesy of ABC News 5 Cleveland, Coleman and Floyd "did knowingly cause serious physical harm to Adam Sapp."

While the Browns second-year receiver wasn’t indicted, he was named in a probable cause affidavit that says the three men attacked the 26-year-old Mayfield Heights resident, according to Adam Ferrise of Cleveland.com.

Sapp also told Cleveland.com in a phone interview he was attacked from behind and was not able to name Corey Coleman as one of his assailants. The attack resulted in him suffering a concussion, a ruptured ear drum and multiple bruises, according to police reports.

Although Sapp wasn’t able to name the Browns’ 2016 first-round pick, his friend Nina Holman said he was involved in the beating.

And even though Corey Coleman wasn’t indicted on Tuesday with the two other men, the issue remains under investigation, Cuyahoga County Prosecutor’s Office spokeswoman Kathleen Caffrey said, according to Nate Ulrich of the Akron Beacon Journal.

Jonathan Coleman and Floyd will be arraigned on July 5.
