Browns coach Pat Shurmur: QB Brandon Weeden “fine,” too early to predict if he’ll play Sunday

BEREA – Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden was in team headquarters today after suffering a concussion Sunday in the fourth quarter of a 20-14 win over Pittsburgh.

Coach Pat Shurmur said Weeden was “fine” but it’s too early to determine if he’ll play Sunday in Oakland against the Raiders. He will follow the protocol established by the team and league for dealing with concussions.

“We’ll go through the process and we’ll know way more on Wednesday,” Shurmur said. “I’m not making any predictions at this point.”

Weeden had played every snap this season until banging the side of his helmet on the leg of left tackle Joe Thomas with 5:20 left. Colt McCoy played the next two series, handing off on all six plays.

Shurmur said McCoy hasn’t received many repetitions with the first-team offense during practice this season, but said he’d be ready by Sunday if needed.
