NFL removes photo of concussed McCoy

Share This Story


The NFL quickly removed a photo of concussed Cleveland Browns quarterback Colt McCoy from its online store after the sports website Deadspin reported Wednesday that the photo was available for purchase.



Ryan and Giants' star running back exchange choice words after the Jets' loss.

The photo depicted a dazed McCoy being tended to by trainers following a crushing hit by Steelers linebacker James Harrison.

McCoy suffered a broken left hand and a concussion last Thursday on the helmet-to-helmet hit by Harrison, who was flagged for a 15-yard penalty. Harrison, a repeat offender, was also suspended one game by the NFL and is appealing the punishment.

Last season, the NFL said it would not sell photos of illegal hits amid a crackdown to reduce helmet-to-helmet collisions.

McCoy sat out two plays and then went back in the game. He was later found to have suffered a concussion on the play.
