Sunday marks the return of the Mangenius. That’s right, the New York Jets will face off against the Cleveland Browns and head Coach Eric Mangini.
We will break down the game later this week, but for now, if you’ve been following the Browns, you know that Rookie QB Colt McCoy has put up 2 impressive games in the past 2 weeks. Wins against New Orleans and New England.
While all indications are that McCoy will start Sunday against the Jets, Browns QB Seneca Wallace returned to practice this week after a three week absence with an ankle sprain.
Mangini estimated Wallace would take about 25 percent of the reps, while McCoy will take the rest.
“At this point we’re just seeing what Seneca can do,” Mangini said.
Jake Delhomme, who was signed during the offseason to be the Browns’ starting quarterback, remains out with a high ankle sprain.
McCoy’s progress has left Mangini impressed.
“I like the way he is able to take on more each week,” the coach said. “I’m proud of him.”
