Browns unable to finish off Jags
“We felt like we had some good answers there,” Mangini said. “We didn’t execute very well and our answers weren’t as good as we thought they were. That’s frustrating.”
Mangini, too, burned up all three second-half timeouts before Cleveland’s final, frenetic drive.
“That just can’t happen,” Mangini said.
And getting your healthiest quarterback hurt can’t happen either. But it did.
In the third quarter, McCoy was injured on a sack, becoming the third Cleveland QB to sustain an ankle injury so far this season. McCoy left the stadium with a cowboy boot on his right foot and a plastic walking boot on his left.
McCoy underwent more tests on Monday, and Mangini said he will wait to see if McCoy can practice on Wednesday before making any decision on a starter for Sunday’s home game against Carolina. Wallace was McCoy’s backup in Jacksonville with Delhomme as the No. 3 quarterback.
Mangini said wide receiver Joshua Cribbs is making progress after missing Sunday’s game with dislocated toes.
Cribbs did not make the trip to Florida, and neither did linebacker Scott Fujita, who is sidelined with a ligament injury suffered against the Jets and may be out a few more weeks. Fujita spoke to reporters for the first time since getting hurt.
“I’ve never seen a game like that,” he said. “I’ve never heard of a game like that.”
Fujita, though, has been with teams which have struggled to close out games. Like anything else, learning to win is a process.
“The last couple weeks it’s just a play here and a play there, and when you don’t make those big plays at those critical moments in the game, that’s what prevents you from winning,” said Fujita, a captain. “It’s disappointing. This team has shown a lot of progress. There are a lot of things to be proud of, but it’s just that the margin of error is so small in this league, and I feel like we’ve learned that more than anybody this season.”
