Colt McCoy Says Lockout Has Given Him Time to Fully Heal

Quarterback Colt McCoy said Monday the silver lining to the NFL lockout is gave time for the pinched nerve in his right shoulder to completely heal according to Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer.

“It feels as good as it’s ever felt,” the Browns quarterback said in a phone interview. “Throwing-wise, I definitely feel back up to speed. I’m not getting fatigued as much as what I was. I really feel good and confident, so that’s always a plus.”

McCoy said one of his main goals in the off-season is to fully recover from the injury suffered on the fifth play of the BCS National Championship Game in January, 2010, when Alabama defensive tackle Marcell Dareus drilled him in the shoulder.

“I didn’t throw there for a good 1 1/2 to two months,” said McCoy. “I just completely let my shoulder heal and did a ton of therapy. I still am, but it feels great now.”

McCoy revealed during last February’s Super Bowl week that he had good and bad days with the shoulder throughout his rookie season, suffering mostly from fatigue. He also said doctors had cautioned him it can take 2-3 years to recover.
