McCoy backs Browns' docs


Browns quarterback Colt McCoy still hasn't been cleared to play after suffering a concussion from a hit by Steelers linebacker James Harrison, but in his first remarks today since getting hurt, McCoy backed the team's medical staff over how he was treated.

McCoy went back into the game after being injured, but didn't remember any of the remaining plays, leading to criticism of the team's handling of his injury. McCoy said the team handled it correctly, however. 

"Our medical staff does an outstanding job and that should never be in question," McCoy told reporters today.

McCoy didn't reveal any of his symptoms or why he hasn't been allowed to return to the field. He is not expected to play on Sunday against the Steelers in the regular season finale. 

"I just don't want to go there guys," McCoy said. "I really don't want to recreate anything. I don't even want to think about it."

Was Harrison's hit a cheap shot? 

"No," he said. "I really have no opinion."
