Browns coach Pat Shurmur met with reporters today before his team practiced in preparation for its regular-season finale Sunday at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Here are some of the highlights from the news conference:
- Quarterback Colt McCoy (concussion), wide receiver Jordan Norwood (concussion) and offensive lineman Tony Pashos (stomach illness) have been ruled out for Sunday, Shurmur said.
- McCoy is officially done for the season. "I think he improved quite a bit from the first game to the last game he played in," Shurmur said. "I think I've said that all along."
- Quarterback Seneca Wallace, who's pictured above, will start against the Steelers, Shurmur said. Thaddeus Lewis will serve as Wallace's backup, Shurmur said.
- With Pashos out, Artis Hicks will start at right tackle, Shurmur said. Oniel Cousins and John Greco could also receive some playing time at right tackle, Shurmur said.
