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.
