Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur ruled out three players for this Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. The "biggest" name to be out is starting quarterback Colt McCoy. McCoy has not practiced all week as he continues to recover from a concussion. Seneca Wallace will make his first start of the season, so we won't get a full 16-game slate of McCoy under center.

Also ruled out for this Sunday's game are fullback Owen Marecic and tight end Benjamin Watson. Watson will actually miss the final three games because the team placed him on the injured reserve, ending his season. With the free roster spot, the Browns promoted fullback Eddie Williams from the practice squad. He is expected to start this week.

Lastly, safety T.J. Ward will make the trip to Arizona on Sunday but it doesn't sound like he'll be playing. Shurmur's full press conference transcript can be read here.
