Colt McCoy Injury: Seneca Wallace Expected To Start

As of Thursday morning Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy has not yet been cleared to play on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers. McCOy has yet to pass the requisite concussion tests, and that means that Seneca Wallace will likely start the season finale for the Browns:

"He's trying to get back as quickly as he can," said coach Pat Shurmur. "And he's expressed that. He wants to get out there and get competing. He's expressed that, sure."

A start by Wallace would be a third straight, and though Cleveland is out of the playoff hunt they can still damage their bitter rivals' postseason chances. Pittsburgh needs a win and a Baltimore loss to clinch the AFC North and a first round bye int he AFC playoffs. They could clinch home field advantage throughout the AFC if New England also loses. A Cleveland victory would likely send the Steelers on the road for three straight weeks in the playoffs.
