05:32 PM ET 11.25 | Cleveland Browns backup quarterback Colt McCoy had to finish out Sunday's upset victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers because starter Brandon Weeden exited late with what's being reported as a concussion after apparently falling and hitting his own offensive lineman. Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain-Dealer reports the Browns had to even take Weeden's helmet because he wanted to go back into the game. Weeden will have to pass a number of tests to not only play next week against the Raiders but also to step on the practice field.

He thought he was back in HS and had to impress the cheerleaders in order to get a date.

Glad they are watching out for him, at least a little bit.

Um, if he ran out onto the field without a helmet, the ref's wouldn't let the play start would they?

He's a Gamer and a good choice, I was wrong!

Maybe if he played with a concussion, he would stop throwing all the balls BEHIND the receivers....something he is doing more and more!!
