Browns receiver Josh Cribbs confirmed today that his lateral on the final play of Monday's game that resulted in a neck injury was not a coach's decision, but his interpretation of Brady Quinn's directive to keep the ball alive.
"It was a call at the line,'' said Cribbs. "It wasn't a call that came in from the coaches. Brady had let us know to keep the ball alive, that he was going to throw the slant to me at the line and to keep the ball alive. He gave the signal to keep it alive, but it wasn't a call that came in from the sideline.''
