Frisky as a colt by nature, patience is not one of Colt McCoy's many virtues.
The rookie quarterback is learning many things in his first NFL training camp. Patience, however, may be the most excruciating lesson so far.
The Saturday team scrimmage, in which McCoy tossed two interceptions, was a particular learning experience.
One interception was returned 40 yards for a touchdown by Brandon McDonald. Mangini said McDonald made a nice play by staying low and then dropping off late to snag the ball.
"It is hard, especially over the last four years when you've taken every rep and every snap in a game," McCoy said. "That's a hard thing to do. I just have to get used to it."
The Browns' master plan for the Texas sharpshooter is proceeding, well, as planned. He gets limited reps at practice. He'll play at mop-up time in the preseason games, starting Saturday in Green Bay.
