On Monday, Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur spoke to the media following the team's loss to the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday. Shurmur talked about Peyton Hillis and his injury, and also shed some light on what was ailing starting quarterback, Colt McCoy. According to CBS Sports, McCoy has a knee sprain and is day-to-day. Shurmur said that McCoy is "just sore" and that he expects him to play on Thursday against the Steelers.
McCoy struggled mightily against the Ravens on Sunday, just as he did against the Cincinnati Bengals a week before that. This will be the third hard-nosed, hard-hitting defense in as many weeks for the Browns, and this one will be on a short week. The team plays the Pittsburgh Steelers on Thursday Night Football on the NFL Network.
The Browns quarterback left Sunday's game in the first quarter after being hit by Baltimore's Arthur Jones. He returned for Cleveland' next possession after being treated on the sideline.
