After attempting to dive for a first down on a third-and-one attempt, quarterback Colt McCoy has entered the NFL concussion protocol.

This means that McCoy will have to pass a variety of tests and be cleared by the team’s physician before stepping foot on the field again.
While it is too early to tell if the 36-year-old will be ready to play against the Buccaneers on Christmas Day, Trace McSorley will take over at quarterback if McCoy is not cleared.
McSorley got a taste of action in the loss against the Broncos, where he threw for two interceptions and less than 100 yards.
With Kyler Murray out for the season and Colt McCoy out with a concussion, the Cardinals offense is looking extremely tenuous with only three weeks remaining in the season.
