Colt McCoy's status in question vs. Carolina

The Cleveland Browns haven't ruled out rookie quarterback Colt McCoy (ankle) for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers, but his status remains "up in the air" this week, a source told ESPN.com's AFC North blog.

McCoy sprained his left ankle in the third quarter of a loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Browns aren't expected to make a firm decision on the rookie third-round draft pick until the end of the week.

McCoy started the past five games for Cleveland (3-7) and went 2-3 in that span. If he cannot play against the Panthers (1-9), the Browns will have to turn to either Seneca Wallace or Jake Delhomme. Both veteran quarterbacks also suffered ankle sprains that sidelined them this season.
