With second-year QB Colt McCoy still recovering from a concussion suffered last Thursday night in a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, veteran QB Seneca Wallace readies himself for the first start of the 2011 NFL regular season. Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur has that McCoy was sent home from practice for the third straight day while still dealing with post-concussion symptoms.
The Browns head coach would not officially rule out Colt McCoy playing this week against the Arizona Cardinals, but the did tell reporters that Seneca Wallace was taking all the snaps with the first-team offense this week. “Seneca’s been taking all the snaps. Two plus two…,” Shurmur said.
In additional Browns news, S T.J. Ward finally returned to the practice field but is unlikely to play this week once again, missing his sixth straight game.
Pat Shurmur also commented that the Browns might be without TE Ben Watson for the remainder of the season. Watson also suffered a concussion against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Shurmur stated, “We hoping to get him back (before the season). There could be a chance he doesn’t”.
