Browns Rookie QB McCoy Remains Sidelined with Ankle Injury

It doesn’t look like Colt McCoy will be back anytime soon, as he didn’t practice today due to the ankle injury that has kept him on the sideline the past few weeks. All accounts seem to point to Jake Delhomme starting Sunday in Buffalo vs the Bills.

McCoy was hurt in the teams loss in Jacksonville back on November 21st, his fifth start. Coach Eric Mangini said Wednesday it’s possible that McCoy could practice this week, but it’s “not a slam dunk.” He said McCoy was able to work with trainers on Tuesday.

The rookie has already stated that he wants to play again this season, but if the team continues to win, you have to wonder if it’s the right move to even risk him for one of the final three games at Cincy, and vs the Ravens and Steelers at home.

    Risk him for what? Spraining his ankle more? Guy in the same division went out and played with a broken foot and broken nose. He’s won two super bowl rings. Risk him? Only thing the browns are doing now is wasting time. And your first sentence is actually incorrect. McCoy will probably return to practice any day now.
