Colt McCoy Set to Receive Some First Team Reps Today, Decision by Thursday?

According to head coach Eric Mangini, he would like to announce the team's plans at starting quarterback when he meets with the media on Thursday. The reason for the delay is that he wants to evaluate how Colt McCoy does in Wednesday's practice. McCoy is expected to see some first team reps Wednesday, so unless something seriously goes wrong during practice, it sounds like the rookie is in line to reclaim the starting role at the Browns close out the season with three division games.

Mangini also mentioned that regardless of who starts at quarterback, Seneca Wallace would probably be the No. 2 quarterback due to the special offensive packages they have available for him. That doesn't mean they will use him more in my opinion, but rather that it's better to have the option of using him. If he was the inactive third quarterback, Cleveland loses that luxury.

Players missing Wednesday's practice include DL Shaun Rogers, LB Scott Fujita, LB David Bowens, and TE Evan Moore. The Browns made a transaction yesterday, promoting CB Coye Francies to the 53-man roster. To make room for Francies, the team waived CB Eric King.
