Colt McCoy Out Sunday with High Ankle Sprain (Seriously)


The curse of the high ankle sprain continues.

Quarterback Colt McCoy has been ruled out against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday with the same injury that took down both Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace earlier this season.

It looks like Delhomme will get the nod against the Panthers; he hasn’t started a game since Week One against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

It’s hard to determine how long McCoy will be out, as the high ankle sprain can be a tricky injury, but after Delhomme and Wallace’s injuries, and the severity of McCoy’s, it could keep him out around four-to-six weeks.

McCoy might be the most impressive young Browns quarterback to come along in quite some time, but even he is unable to avoid the yearly rash of quarterback injuries that ravage the Browns’ roster like a grizzly bear would to a group of hikers coated in grape jelly.

    It’s absolutely amazing, how this crap happens to our quarterbacks every year. Three high ankle sprains?? Really? What are the odds of that happening? They have to be off the charts, I mean….Oh wait, scratch that. I forgot my area code there for a second. This is Cleveland…of course we’ve blown through three qb’s. Bad luck is our business.

    I used to live in Downtown Pittsburgh. There is an old woman who lives in a shanty on the shore of the Allegheny River who will put curses on people for money. I’d bet that she has voodoo dolls of all Cleveland QBs with needles in the ankles. It doesn’t matter if the Steelers see Cleveland as a threat or as a waste of time. Native Pittsburghers feed off of NE Ohio misery like vampires feed on blood.
