McCoy's father rips Browns for putting Colt back in game
The fallout from the Colt McCoy hit by James Harrison in Thursday night's game is creating all sorts of talk regarding how the Cleveland Browns handled McCoy.
McCoy's father Brad, who coached his son in junior high and high school, ripped the Browns to the Cleveland Plain Dealer for the team putting his son back into the game, saying that when he spoke to him Thursday morning, Colt did not remember anything from the game other than the Browns lost.
"He never should've gone back in the game," Brad McCoy said. "He was basically out (cold) after the hit. You could tell by the rigidity of his body as he was laying there. There were a lot of easy symptoms that should've told them he had a concussion. He was nauseated and he didn't know who he was. From what I could see, they didn't test him for a concussion on the sidelines. They looked at his (left) hand."
Brad McCoy then addressed the situation that McCoy had to have the camera lights turned off in order to answer postgame questions.
"After the game, the (public relations staff) made sure Colt's interview was brief and he couldn't face the lights in his press conference,'' said Brad. "The TV lights and the Stadium lights were killing him. Why would you say he was fine? That makes it even worse."
