Colt McCoy will have to take the Browns home

The Browns lead 20-14 with three minutes to play and they’ve got the ball following Joe Haden’s interception of Charlie Batch.

It won’t be Brandon Weeden trying to ice the game, however. Weeden has been taken to the locker room for “further evaluation” after getting hurt on a Browns series that ended with an incompletion and a punt a bit earlier in the quarter. That means Colt McCoy will be piloting the Browns the rest of the way. McCoy’s last run-in with the Steelers ended his 2011 season when a hit by linebacker James Harrison left him concussed.

Weeden didn’t show signs of injury to a particular body part, but he did hit his head on Joe Thomas’ knee before leaving the game. Weeden was 17-of-26 for 158 yards, one touchdown and one interception before getting hurt.

UPDATE 3:58 p.m. ET: McCoy handed the ball off three times, but the Browns forced a fumble by running back Chris Rainey and recovered for a seventh takeaway of the day. The Steelers have no timeouts left, although they’ll get the ball back once more unless the Browns pick up a first down.
