Colt McCoy Injury Update: Browns QB Misses Practice Monday

After experiencing concussion-like symptoms following a hard hit during Thursday's loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy was absent from practice on Monday morning. The Browns' starter experienced significant symptoms of a concussion over the weekend, and now that he is missing Monday's practice his status for this week is in doubt:

McCoy suffered the head injury when Steelers linebacker James Harrison drilled him in the facemask with his helmet with a little less than six minutes left in the game. He remained down on the field for a few minutes and then spent only two plays -- totaling 80 seconds -- on the sidelines. Total time from the hit to returning to the game was 3:50.

If McCoy is unable to go on Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, Seneca Wallace will draw the start. McCoy has since commented that he does not remember going back into the game after Harrison's hit and admitted that he should not have returned to action.
