CLEVELAND – The father of Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy is blasting the team for putting his son back in the game after a hard-hit Thursday night.
The Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot reported on Friday that Brad McCoy said his son doesn’t remember parts of the game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. McCoy told the Plain Dealer he didn’t think his son was tested properly for a concussion on the sidelines.
Colt McCoy took a helmet-to-helmet blow from linebacker James Harrison, who was penalized for the hit. Harrison has a history in the league of being fined for hits to the head.
“He never should’ve gone back in the game,” Brad McCoy told the Plain Dealer. “He was basically out (cold) after the hit. You could tell by the ridgity of his body as he was laying there.”The longtime high school football coach also said he didn’t like the way Browns head coach Pat Shurmur handled the situation.
The Browns lost 14-3 during the game at Heinz Field.
Shurmur will talk to the media Friday afternoon.
The NFL has a very strict concussion policy and has recently increased the fines against players for helmet-to-helmet hits.
