NFL, NFLPA meeting today regarding McCoy
Representatives of the NFL and the NFL Players Association are scheduled to meet today in Cleveland to discuss and determine whether the Browns followed proper protocol regarding checking quarterback Colt McCoy back into last Thursday's game after a helmet-to-helmet hit by Pittsburgh's James Harrison.
According to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, Browns coach Pat Shurmur said, the team's medical staff followed the correct procedure with McCoy who returned to the game shortly after having his hand examined. McCoy was not diagnosed with a concussion until the following day.
"We followed all the proper medical procedures," Shurmur said. "[There are] sideline procedures to determine whether the man can play. We followed them and I think that's what's important."
According to the newspaper, Shurmur did not answer when asked if a SCAT2 test was administered to McCoy on the sideline.
McCoy did not practice Monday and might not make his scheduled start against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday.
