McCoy has been battling symptoms from a concussion he sustained during a helmet-to-helmet with Pittsburgh Steelers linebacker James Harrison in last Thursday’s game. It was reported yesterday that the former University of Texas star was not checked by team trainers for concussion symptoms prior to re-entering the game. The NFL Players Association has launched an investigation into the matter.

The 25-year-old is in his second year in the league after being drafted in the third round out of the University of Texas. In 13 games this season, McCoy had thrown for 2733 yards, 14 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.
