Colt McCoy Injury: McCoy Needs Lights Turned Off During Post-Game Interview

The Cleveland Browns may have some questions to answer later today and not all just about another AFC North loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.  After quarterback Colt McCoy was lit up by James Harrison, McCoy returned to the game after one play.  Problem is, after the game, McCoy needed all the lights in the interview room turned down - at the request of the Browns.  

Sensitivity to light is one of the many signs of 'concussion-like symptoms'.  Add to that a report that McCoy didn't remember the hit and you have to wonder if McCoy underwent any kind of concussion testing on the sideline.  The NFL has made detecting concussions in-game a priority, and we've seen players in the past remain sidelined during the game as teams played it safe with apparent head injuries.

When asked if he felt the hit was dirty, Browns head coach Pat Shurmur thought so.

"Well, I mean it was penalized, right?'' said Shurmur. "I think (the officials) felt it was, so it was penalized.''

It remains to be seen if Shurmur and the Browns will have to answer for anything else.
