Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was sent home before Wednesday's practice with a headache as he was held out of practice again. McCoy sustained a concussion following a hit by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison in Week 14.
McCoy was not checked for a concussion on the sideline during the game, which has put Cleveland under the microscope since the game. On Wednesday, Browns President Mike Holmgren said that McCoy was not checked for a concussion because he did not exhibit any signs of a head injury, via the Associated Press.
"He didn't display any signs of a concussion," Holmgren said during a nearly one-hour news conference.
Meanwhile, three other Browns also did not practice on Wednesday: wide receiver Joshua Cribbs (groin), running back Owen Marecic (head) and tight end Benjamin Watson (head). Four others were limited in practice: guard Shawn Lauvao (ankle), tackle Tony Pashos (ankle), linebacker Quinton Spears (hamstring) and safety T.J. Ward (foot).
