Update on Cleveland Browns QB Situation vs. Jets

If there are any doubts on who will start at quarterback this week for the Cleveland Browns, then let's clear it up right now: Colt McCoy will make his fourth consecutive start versus the New York Jets. Head coach Eric Mangini won't commit to him as the starter verbally, but let's take a look at the other two quarterbacks this week...

  • While Seneca Wallace returned to practice on Wednesday and moved around well, he did not cut into McCoy's playing time with the first-team offense. Wallace ran the scout team, something that I imagine Brett Ratliff had been doing before. Wallace will continue doing the same thing in Thursday's practice.
     
  • At last, Jake Delhomme will return to the practice field Thursday for the first time in weeks, but will be very limited. There is no way that he would be in line to even be considered to start in this week's game, although he could possibly be the team's No. 3 quarterback.

For McCoy to be getting all of the first-team practice reps, it wouldn't make sense to put Wallace or Delhomme back under center given McCoy's play the past couple of weeks. Cleveland has been bringing out the trick plays though, so if the Browns want to stay creative this week, maybe we could see Wallace come in for a few plays out of the Cyclone.
