The Browns will not be disciplined by the NFL for their handling of the Colt McCoy concussion injury in Pittsburgh on Dec. 8, according to league spokesman Greg Aiello. The Browns put McCoy back in the game without testing for a concussion. The NFLPA has not decided whether to file a grievance against the club, said union spokesman Carl Francis in an email reply. The incident spurred two changes in league protocol. Teams were notified on Wednesday that starting with this weekend's games: To read more, go to http://blog.cleveland.com/browns_impact/print.html?

At this point, it seems pretty likely that the St. Louis Rams, who have former No. 1 pick Sam Bradford at quarterback, will trade the No. 2 overall pick in April's draft to a QB-needy team. A bunch of teams will likely show interest, jacking up the price for the pick and giving the Rams enough incentive to move out of that prime draft position. So which team can give St. Louis the biggest haul for the right to draft Robert Griffin III? The Cleveland Browns, who have gotten uneven play from Colt McCoy, have given mixed messages about their plans -- it shouldn't surprise anyone that they are playing coy -- but they appear to have the best package of draft picks to make a deal happen.

Tide will roll with Ingram Andrea Adelson Orlando Sentinel Alabama and Texas have two of the best defenses in the country, two of the best players in the country and two of the best coaches in the country. So why will Alabama win the BCS national championship? Because a good running game beats a good passing game when championships are on the line. That means the Tide will win on the legs of Heisman Trophy winner Mark Ingram, while Texas will suffer because of its inconsistency on the ground.

Colt McCoy has it all Desmond Conner, Hartford Courant Every candidate has to have a big "Heisman moment." Colt McCoy, my choice for the award, had his against Texas A&M last month. In the Longhorns' 49-39 win, McCoy was outstanding with 304 passing yards (24-of-40, 4 TDs) and 175 rushing yards. McCoy isn't a running quarterback. What he did for his team on that day was needed and he came through like never before. That's what big-time players at big-time programs do on big stages.

Toby Gerhart, RB, Stanford Stats: 311 rushes for 1,736 yards and 26 touchdowns. Why he could win: Pound for pound, Gerhart has had the best statistical year of all the candidates. And Heisman voters love statistics. Gerhart led the Pac-10 in rushing yards and touchdowns. His 205-yard performance against Notre Dame bolstered his profile. Why he won't: Despite Stanford's 8-4 season, the other four candidates have the luxury of playing for traditional powers.

Colt McCoy did not play last Sunday due to post-concussion symptoms, and the Cleveland Browns are waiting for an update on their starting quarterback about his availability for Saturday's game against the Ravens. “First, we've got to get him to the point where he's going to be healthy enough to play,” Browns coach Pat Shurmur said in a conference call with Baltimore media Tuesday. “He's still going through the process of coming back from his concussion. As we sit today - I guess it's a Tuesday, but it's really a Wednesday in my world - he's not out there practicing yet.” McCoy has yet to be cleared for contact after absorbing a helmet-to-helmet hit from Pittsburgh Steelers outside linebacker James Harrison in an 11-point loss on Dec. 8. McCoy's absence was filled by Seneca Wallace, who completed 18-of-31 passes for 226 yards, which included a 76-yard touchdown pass to rookie wide receiver Greg Little in a 20-17 overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals Sunday.

As a starter this season, Colt McCoy is just 4-7, but the Cleveland Browns quarterback has shown flashes of his potential and boasts a few statistic similar to that of his counterpart this Sunday. McCoy has the same touchdown-to-interception ratio as the Ravens' Joe Flacco (13-8), has a slightly better completion percentage (58.5 percent to Flacco's 56 percent), and a slightly lower passer rating (78.1 to Flacco's 78.9). McCoy has endured his share of struggles, failing to throw for at least 200 yards in four of his last six games and matching Flacco for a league-high 10 fumbles.

It wasn't a carbon copy, but the Ravens' defensive blueprint in Sunday evening's 24-10 victory over the Cleveland Browns was very similar to the one they used against the San Francisco 49ers on Thanksgiving. For a second straight game, the Ravens smothered their opponents' running attack, then chased their quarterback. The Ravens sacked second-year signal-caller Colt McCoy three times, forced him from the pocket on a few other occasions and briefly knocked him out of the game. "We've got some young hunters.

Oklahoma's loss opens the door for just about everyone in the Big 12. Everyone expected the road to the conference title would go through Norman, but now that's not the case. Oklahoma State and Kansas State have the inside track, and Texas A&M and Baylor still have some say. Clemson can win the ACC title, but a BCS title seems far-fetched. The Tigers look virtually unstoppable on offense behind quarterback Tajh Boyd, but defense wins titles and Clemson gives up way too many yards and points to be a serious national title contender.

Ohio State can win despite itself. The Buckeyes are by no means a flashy team, but they do two things really well — run the ball and play defense. It's that formula that helped them hand Illinois its first loss. Texas still has a lot of work to do . With turnover trouble — eight in the two games against Oklahoma and Oklahoma State — and virtually no production at quarterback, the Longhorns are far from being back on the national radar. Baylor needs to quit believing the hype.

The 2011 NFL draft has come and gone, leaving us in limbo until the lockout ends and free agency begins sometime (hopefully) this summer. The Ravens pieced together another solid draft class over the weekend, but they weren’t the only ones in the AFC North who got better during the draft. Their three division rivals came away as winners as well. The Ravens and the Steelers bolstered their rosters for title runs in 2011. Meanwhile, the rebuilding Bengals and Browns probably won’t be ready to compete with the AFC North’s two powerhouses whenever football operations resume, but they helped lay strong foundations for future seasons in this draft.

Hunter Lawrence made a 46-yard field goal as time expired, giving Colt McCoy and the No. 3 Texas Longhorns a 13-12 victory over No. 21 Nebraska in the Big 12 championship Saturday night in Arlington, Texas, and a ticket to the BCS championship game. McCoy returned for his senior season in hopes of matching predecessor Vince Young's feat of leading Texas to a national championship. Now he'll get that shot Jan. 7 in Pasadena, Calif., against No. 2 Alabama, the Southeastern Conference champion.

LOS ANGELES - Texas will win the national championship because, in LA-LA land, people like scripts that come full circle, having their fortunes told and Jupiter aligned with Mars. There are too many coincidences to think it can go any other way, at least that's what the palm reader said. Four years ago, at the Rose Bowl, Texas defeated USC to win the national title. Before trotting onto the field to lead the Longhorns on the game-winning drive, quarterback Vince Young turned to a skinny redshirt freshman holding a clipboard and told him to pay attention because he was going to be in this position someday.
