Browns quarterback Colt McCoy missed Monday's practice, which doesn't come as a surprise. The Browns have to be extremely careful with McCoy's head injury after reports say the organization mishandled the situation.

It also wouldn't be a surprise if the Browns decided to sit McCoy in Sunday's game at Arizona because of the intense scrutiny surrounding this situation. Seneca Wallace would replace McCoy, who has made 21 straight starts.

Browns coach Pat Shurmur maintains his team's medical staff followed NFL guidelines when quarterback Colt McCoy was cleared to go back in Thursday's game at Pittsburgh despite a concussion. But a union source told ESPN senior NFL analyst Chris Mortensen that the team didn't administer the proper tests until Friday morning.

The controversy surrounding McCoy's concussion has been the latest off-the-field distraction in a season to forget, from Peyton Hillis' contract situation to Josh Cribbs' unhappiness with his role on the team.
