Colt McCoy Injury: Browns QB Ruled Out Sunday, Seneca Wallace To Start

It's official: the Cleveland Browns will be without quarterback Colt McCoy on Sunday, when they take on the Arizona Cardinals. Head coach Pat Shurmur ruled McCoy out with a concussion after sending him home from practice for the third-straight day. McCoy still has lingering effects of the concussion, and even with the long rest following last week's Thursday Night Football game, he's not ready and has not taken a snap in practice since then.

McCoy took a helmet-to-helmet hit from Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison on Thursday. There's been a lot of controversy because McCoy eventually went back into the game and played, throwing an interception in the endzone. Following the game, McCoy struggled with the lights at the postgame press conference, and told his father that he didn't remember anything following the hit, including his interception.

In his place, Seneca Wallace will get the start against Arizona. This might spell the end of McCoy's time in Cleveland, considering the thought that the team was going to evaluate him over the last couple weeks to see if he's the quarterback of the future.
