Browns leaning toward McCoy against Patriots
Thu, 04 Nov 2010 12:40:42 GMT —
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Injured Browns quarterbacks Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace are not practicing, making it likely rookie quarterback Colt McCoy will start Sunday against New England.
Coach Eric Mangini had expected Wallace to be back on Wednesday. McCoy instead will get all the reps with Cleveland's starting offense and if there are no changes in the next few days, the third-round pick will get his third consecutive start.
McCoy is 1-1 as a starter, losing at Pittsburgh and winning in New Orleans.
Wallace and Delhomme are dealing with high ankle sprains. Delhomme was injured in the season opener and re-injured his ankle Oct. 10, when he had to come in to replace Wallace, who rolled his ankle against Atlanta.
