An interesting development with the Cleveland Browns took place on Wednesday morning and it could ultimately impact who starts on their offensive line on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
According to Mary Kay Cabot of cleveland.com, Browns starting left tackle Greg Robinson is now in concussion protocol as of Wednesday afternoon after reporting to the team’s facility earlier in the morning with concussion-like symptoms. The Browns first injury report of Week 13 won’t be released until later on Wednesday so expect Robinson to be listed on it.
Should Robinson ultimately be unable play Sunday against the Steelers then it’s believed that Justin McCray would likely start at left tackle in his place. McCray has started two games already this season. In Week 3 he started at right tackle in place of Chris Hubbard and in Week 8 he started at left tackle against the New England Patriots in place of Robinson.
Whomever starts at left tackle on Sunday against the Browns will face off against Steelers outside linebacker Bud Dupree, who is having a fantastic season to date. Against Robinson a few weeks ago, Dupree failed to register a quarterback sack, hit, or hurry in the Steelers road loss to the Browns.
