Browns receiver Mohamed Massaquoi left last week’s preseason opener with what coach Pat Shurmur said was a concussion. Massaquoi later wrote on Twitter that he hadn’t suffered a concussion, and Shurmur responded to that by saying he doesn’t like Twitter.
Now the 25-year-old Massaquoi has explained that he thinks the 47-year-old Shurmur is too old to get social networking.
“Tweeting is a new-age thing,” Massaquoi said. “Pat’s a little older, so he doesn’t really understand it. But we’re gonna keep certain things in house as far as Twitter goes. We’re not gonna give any game plans or anything like that or give too many updates which may hinder something that we’re trying to do.”
Shurmur and Massaquoi continue to disagree about whether Massaquoi needed to be removed from the preseason game. Massaquoi insists that he’s fine.
“I feel great, always felt great, never developed a symptom or anything,” Massaquoi said. “Everything that was done was strictly precautionary because of the type of the hit, the way that the hit looked. So I’m excited just to play right now, and now we’re gonna keep moving forward.”
Massaquoi, whose 2011 season was cut short by concussions, may play against the Packers on Thursday night. If he does get cleared to play, Shurmur would probably prefer that he not announce it on Twitter.
