Browns coach Pat Shurmur met with reporters today before his team practiced in preparation for its road game Saturday against the Baltimore Ravens. Here are some of the highlights from the news conference:
- Quarterback Seneca Wallace "more than likely will be the starter, for sure," when the Browns visit the Ravens, Shurmur said. Wallace, who's pictured above, started for the first time this season Sunday in the Browns' 20-17 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals.
- Quarterback Colt McCoy, who suffered a concussion Dec. 8, has not yet been medically cleared to return to action, Shurmur said. "He was in today and he went through the treatment process, but the specifics of the testing, it wouldn't be fair to say," Shurmur said. "He was here, he had treatment, he went to meetings and then he won't be at practice. ... This is the first time he's gone through meetings in awhile, so he's making progress. After meetings, he'll be going home." Shurmur said he doesn't know McCoy's availability for this week or if McCoy will play again this season.
- Cornerback Joe Haden has a thigh contusion and will be limited today, Shurmur said.
- Wide receiver Jordan Norwood and linebacker Benjamin Jacobs won't practice today. They suffered concussions Sunday.
- Fullback Owen Marecic, who suffered concussion on Dec. 8, participated in the team's walk through this morning, Shurmur said.
- Wide receiver Josh Cribbs (groin) participated in the team's walk through this morning and will play this week, Shurmur said.
