Josh McCown taken to locker room

Browns quarterback Josh McCown threw two touchdown passes in the first 10 minutes Sunday, but then was briefly taken to the locker room with what appeared to be an injury to his left (non-throwing) arm or shoulder.

Rookie Cody Kessler was warming up and would replace McCown if he can’t return. McCown returned to the sideline during the Ravens’ next possession, then returned to the game after the Ravens turned the ball over on downs.

Both of McCown’s touchdown passes went to rookie wide receiver Corey Coleman. McCown was taken to the locker room shortly after his second.

The Browns lead the Ravens, 20-2. They’ve scored three touchdowns but had the PAT blocked and returned for two points on the third.

McCown started today because Robert Griffin III is on injured reserve after suffering a shoulder injury last week.

The Browns only have two quarterbacks on the active roster. Wide receiver Terrelle Pryor, a former quarterback, is presumably the team’s emergency quarterback.

    Wow. How about that non-call? McCown gives himself up. Play completely over. Not one but two Ravens smash into him with no call. Unbelievable. If that had been Steeler defenders there would have been 6 flags on the field.

    If this guy is your starting QB, you got problems.

    Any team with RGKnee is a C grade at best. He’s like the Stephen Baldwin of football. And to think he beat out Russell Wilson for ROTY, what a joke. The silver lining to this whole QB debacle is at least the Browns reflect the city of Cleveland; a crumbling mess.

    If this guy is torching your defense, you got problems.

    I’ve been a Pats fan since the 1970s.

    We were robbed of a SB appearance in the 70s due to the worst call in NFL history. Went to a SB in the 80s. Again in the 90s. That would qualify as success for most teams.

    In between, we usually stunk. Then Kraft bought the team and brought in a real coach. They cut all the fools and buffoons and established a culture of responsibility. At one point, they drafted Christain Peter, a jerk who beat his girlfriend. He was cut as soon as NE found out.

    Cleveland drafted Johnny “Can’t Play Football” knowing he had serious issues. Problem is, the Browns have a criminal for an owner.

    Yeah I think you meant that Kraft brought in 2 of the biggest cheaters in NFL history

    I find this fascinating. You don’t believe, yet you show great deference when you refer to that in which you don’t believe. At least it’s my understanding that the spelling you used is done so out of deference, by devout members of a certain faith.

    I’m not trying to bust your chops in any way. I’m just trying to figure it out. It’s like a conundrum or some such.
