BEREA (92.3 The Fan) - Cleveland Browns head coach Pat Shurmur is extremely careful when it comes to concussions.

He has Steelers linebacker James Harrison and backup quarterback Colt McCoy to thank for that.

With starter rookie Brandon Weeden sustaining a concussion with 5:20 to play in Sunday’s 20-14 win over the Steelers Shurmur is treading carefully.

Replays showed Weeden’s head hitting the thigh of left tackle Joe Thomas while being turned around by Steelers linebacker Jason Worilds, who was applying pressure on the play.

Shurmur said that Weeden was at the team’s facility Monday and is going through the “strict league protocol” for concussions.

Shurmur added that he will know “way more on Wednesday” about Weeden’s progress and status for next Sunday’s game at Oakland.

“We’ve got to go through the process,” Shurmur said. “I’m not making any predictions at this point.”

If Weeden isn’t cleared to play McCoy would start against the Raiders.

“If Colt goes in the game, I expect that he’s going to function fine,” Shurmur said. “I’ve got all the confidence in the world in Colt. I don’t see any reason why he couldn’t go in and play well.”
