Mohamed Massaquoi Injury: Coach Pat Shurmur Emphatic That Browns WR Suffered Concussion

After he denied reports that he suffered a concussion in Friday's game through Twitter, the case of Cleveland Browns wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi became a tad bit more interesting on Sunday as Browns coach Pat Shurmur completely refuted his star receiver's comments to Browns beat reporter Daryl Ruiter:

Considering that Massaquoi's exact words on Twitter mentioned that everything was "precautionary" and that he "cant [sic] wait to get back to work," this is an odd development between two sides of a story that seem to have the same information at hand.

Obviously Shurmur's word is the one that matters here in the end, but it's hard to imagine the Browns are too thrilled with one of their players refuting a sensitive league-wide issue, such as a concussion, like this through social media.
