Browns waiting for McCoy to return

Colt McCoy

did not play last Sunday due to post-concussion symptoms, and the

Cleveland Browns

are waiting for an update on their starting quarterback about his availability for Saturday's game against the

Ravens

.

“First, we’ve got to get him to the point where he’s going to be healthy enough to play,” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said in a conference call with Baltimore media Tuesday. “He’s still going through the process of coming back from his concussion. As we sit today – I guess it’s a Tuesday, but it’s really a Wednesday in my world – he’s not out there practicing yet.”

McCoy has yet to be cleared for contact after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit from

Pittsburgh Steelers

outside linebacker

James Harrison

in an 11-point loss on Dec. 8.

McCoy’s absence was filled by

Seneca Wallace

, who completed 18-of-31 passes for 226 yards, which included a 76-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver

Greg Little

in a 20-17 overtime loss to the

Arizona Cardinals

Sunday.

“I think they’re similar in style as quarterback, and I think you can see that evidenced by the way Seneca played last week against Arizona,” Shurmur said of Wallace and McCoy. “So I think that allows us to do a lot of the same things offensively that we would have done with Colt. So that part is good. And then Seneca is a veteran player in this league, and he did some good things the other day.”
