The Battle of Ohio might be a battle of attrition for the quarterbacks involved. The Browns' Colt McCoy and the Bengals' Andy Dalton were both listed with right shoulder injuries as both teams began on-field preparation Wednesday.
Dalton was seen working out in team drills during the 30-minute period media is allowed to attend practice, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer. The rookie second-round pick was listed as limited participation on the injury report.
While he took some shots late last Sunday in Baltimore, he didn't leave the game or favor the injured shoulder. Dalton also gave no indication of any health issues during his weekly midweek press conference, which comes after the morning walkthrough and before practice.
As far as McCoy, he briefly left last Sunday's game against the Jaguars with the shoulder injury but he acknowledged to the Cleveland Plain Dealer that he's had soreness before that game. He fully participated in practice and looked fine in throwing the ball during the media viewing portion of practice, the Plain Dealer reported.
"I felt pretty good at practice today," McCoy told the newspaper. "I wasn't held out of anything, so it's all good."
