Browns sideline reporter Bernie Kosar speculated during an in-game report that McCarron might have suffered an injury and appears to have been proven correct.
McCarron is competing with rookie Josh Allen and second-year player Nathan Peterman for the starting quarterback job. The former Alabama QB was given the opportunity to start on Friday but only went 3-of-6 for 12 yards. No player has distinguished himself in the competition so far.
