Colt McCoy Injury: Browns QB Not Cleared To Play Yet, Misses Practice Wednesday

There was some hope that the Cleveland Browns would get quarterback Colt McCoy back and cleared for physical activity on Wednesday, but now that hope has been stamped out. McCoy was not cleared for anything other than normal workouts - which means no practicing with the team or individual work with trainers that include football activity. Wednesday marks the first practice of the week, and when a player suffers as big a concussion as McCoy appeared to, it's not a good sign going forward.

With only one game left to go, and not being cleared on Wednesday, it's unlikely that McCoy will be available for the Browns on Sunday. In his place, Seneca Wallace will likely make his third-straight start since McCoy suffered the injury from a helmet-to-helmet hit by Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison on Thursday Night Football and has not played since that game.

There's doubt that McCoy would even be the starter if cleared to play on Sunday, as Wallace has been playing well in his absence, despite an 0-2 mark this season.
