On Thursday, Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy took a vicious hit to the helmet from Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison. McCoy went down, missed two plays, then came back in and threw an interception in the end zone three players later. McCoy's father, Brad, spoke out about his son's injury on Friday, saying that McCoy told him that he didn't remember anything about the hit and that he clearly should not have been in the game.
"I talked to Colt this morning and he said, 'dad, I don't know what happened, but I know I lost the game. I know I let the team [down]. What happened?''
Brad goes on to note that McCoy should never have been back in the game, that he was out cold after he took the hit and that anybody could tell that he was experiencing a concussion. He also expressed dissatisfaction with the way that head coach Pat Shurmur handled the postgame press conference.
If any of this is true, that's not only a bad sign for Colt, but clearly something that the coaching staff needs to answer for.
