Browns won't be punished in McCoy matter
The NFL said Wednesday the Cleveland Browns will not face any discipline over sending Colt McCoy back into the Dec. 8 game against Pittsburgh after he suffered a concussion.
The concussion, which came as a result of a helmet-to-helmet hit from the Steelers' James Harrison, was not diagnosed until the day after the game. Harrison was suspended for one game over the hit, and now says via ESPN.com that the Browns should face some sort of discipline in the matter, since he was punished for the hit.
"If he was hurt so bad I don't know why they let him back in ... two plays later," Harrison said. "Something should be done to them, I would think. I don't know. I got a game, what should they get?"
Harrison does have a point, but it will fall on deaf ears since the league has already rendered its decision. The only ramification from the matter is the implementing of extra trainers to monitor concussions players may suffer during games.
