Though there was actually little hope that he'd be able to play regardless, Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy has officially been ruled out by the team for Saturday's game against the AFC North rival Baltimore Ravens. McCoy didn't practice at all this week after suffering a concussion following a brutal helmet-to-helmet hit from Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison on Thursday Night Football.
It's likely that, even if McCoy had been medically cleared to play, the team would have been careful with him after being so thoroughly chastised for letting McCoy go back into Thursday's game following the hit. Following the game, many were upset about the fact, including McCoy's father, who said the second-year quarterback told him that he didn't remember anything following the hit. Not to mention the fact that McCoy's replacement played well in his absence.
That is to say, Seneca Wallace may have earned more starting time when he nearly led the Browns to a victory over the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday. Arizona would end up winning in overtime, but it was a close game regardless and Wallace gave the offense a spark it didn't have with McCoy at the helm.
