Antonio Callaway began his Cleveland Browns career earlier this week with the first days of rookie mini-camp. He didn't finish the session today.

Callaway reportedly suffered some sort of leg injury, according to reporters at the practice. He was walked out of practice with the training staff with an apparent limp.

Fortunately, it doesn't seem like Callaway was hurt badly. He walked off under his own power.

Callaway reportedly took off his left shoe, which could point to the injury.

If you believe in bad karma--and if you're a Browns fan, you probably do--this isn't how you wanted the week to start. Denzel Ward was also injured in practice earlier this week and was held out today.

However, after initial reports it doesn't look like Callaway will be out of action long. That's a relief for the Browns.

Seen as a first-round talent, Callaway reportedly failed his drug test at the combine, which caused him to slide into the fourth round where the Browns snatched him up.
