Colt McCoy Injury: Pat Shurmur Does Not Commit To McCoy As Starting Quarterback

Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy's status remains uncertain for Saturday's game against the Baltimore Ravens after lingering effects from a concussion, and his status also remains uncertain within the team's depth chart at quarterback.

Indeed, coach Pat Shurmur did not commit to starting McCoy when he is fully recovered from his concussion, via Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com.

"I'm going to cross that bridge when they're both healthy," said Shurmur. "Right now, until Colt's healthy, we're going to go with Seneca."

Asked specifically if McCoy will start Saturday against the Ravens if healthy, Shurmur said, "If Colt is OK -- when Colt is OK -- we'll talk about that," said Shurmur. "How's that? Good answer?"

Shurmur spoke highly of Seneca Wallace after the 31 year-old threw for 226 yards and a touchdown while starting in place of the injury McCoy in a 20-17 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. However, Shurmur went on to note that Cleveland only dropped one of Wallace's passes, and it should also be noted that Wallace had running back Peyton Hillis in the backfield rushing for 99 yards, so all things were not necessarily equal.

So while McCoy may not be out as the starting quarterback for good in Cleveland, it is clear that Shurmur is not interested in declaring that McCoy is the starting quarterback in Cleveland at this point either.
