Anyone wearing white and taking snaps Sunday in Pittsburgh is taking plenty of hits. One of them — WR/Wildcat QB Joshua Cribbs – won’t return to the game after suffering a head injury.
Cribbs took a significant number of snaps in the Flash package for the Browns, but he left the game midway through the second quarter following a 1-yard run on a direct snap. Steelers LB James Harrison laid a helmet-to-helmet hit on Cribbs, who was immediately brought to the locker room.
The Browns announced soon afterward that Cribbs wouldn’t return.
With Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace already ruled out, rookie Colt McCoy made his first career start for the Browns. The Flash package with Cribbs figured to be used often against the Steelers. But with Cribbs now out, the onus is McCoy for the rest of the game.
Brett Ratliff is the only other quarterback on Cleveland’s roster.
UPDATE: Browns WR Mohamed Massaquoi later sustained a head injury, also on a hit by Harrison. Massaquoi will not return.
