Cleveland Browns president Mike Holmgren admitted Wednesday that the team's medical staff did not check Colt McCoy for a concussion on the sideline before sending him back in to last Thursday night's 14-3 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
"Was Colt examined on the sideline? No, he was not," Holmgren said, insisting that the Browns' medical staff followed proper protocol.
McCoy's hand was examined after the helmet-to-helmet hit from James Harrison, but the Browns said he showed no signs of a concussion at the time and did not exhibit concussion-like symptoms until Friday. However, afte the game, McCoy said he did not remember the hit by Harrison, that later drew the linebacker a one-game suspension. Also, TV cameras were asked to turn off their lights because it was bothering McCoy during his post-game interview session.
McCoy, who is now being treated for a concussion, was went home from the Browns' facility due to a headache.
