McCoy would be an underdog in that scenario, but he’s at least expected to be healthy enough to fight for the job.
Browns President Mike Holmgren told Vic Carucci of ClevelandBrowns.com that McCoy has been medically cleared after his concussion late in 2011.
“He passed all his tests and he’s feeling fine. He has no residual effects from the play,” Holmgren said.
Holmgren has now been in Cleveland two years. His quarterback depth chart isn’t appreciably better than when he arrived; McCoy hasn’t shown that he’s better than a backup-quality player.
We’d be surprised if McCoy leads the team in starts for another year for Cleveland.
