Colt McCoy clears concussion protocol, expected to start vs. Falcons

The Arizona Cardinals should have quarterback Colt McCoy back on the field leading the offense at quarterback this weekend when they face the Atlanta Falcons on the road.

McCoy, who suffered a concussion in the second half of the team’s 24-15 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 15, missed their 19-16 overtime loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 16.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday, McCoy cleared league protocols Wednesday and is a full go for all football activities.

The Cardinals held a walkthrough Wednesday for their first work of the week and he was a full participant on the team’s first injury report of the week.

In three starts this season, the Cardinals are 1-2.
