McCown was forced out of the game after a strip-sack late in the fourth quarter. He was tested and cleared for a concussion, but also suffered a shoulder injury on the play. McCown was clearly favoring his right arm as he walked to the locker room. The severity of the injury has yet to be determined, but McCown said he would be all right after the game.
#Browns QB Josh McCown wouldn't comment on severity of shoulder injury beyond "I'll be all right." Said hurt it on strip-sack late in 4Q.
Johnny Manziel came on in relief with 3;26 remaining, and finished 4 of 5 for 27 yards. Pettine said after that game that Manziel would get the call again next week against Arizona if McCown is out. That is assuming that Manziel doesn’t get a call from the NFL office first. Reports surfaced Friday that Manziel could be put on paid leave while the league investigates the domestic violence incident he was involved in with his girlfriend on Oct. 12.
#Browns HC Mike Pettine said Johnny Manziel would start if Josh McCown is out with shoulder injury.
