Colt McCoy impressing in practice

BEREA, Ohio -- Cleveland Browns coach Eric Mangini was pleased with Colt McCoy's first practice as a potential starter and said his lean is "more pronounced" to the rookie quarterback making his NFL debut Sunday in Pittsburgh.

McCoy has risen up the depth chart following injuries to Jake Delhomme and Seneca Wallace, who are nursing ankle injuries and could be out for several weeks.

On Wednesday, Mangini said he was leaning toward McCoy starting against the Steelers. Mangini is happy with McCoy's progress and said the third-round pick from Texas will get the bulk of the snaps during practice on Thursday.

Mangini said McCoy looked comfortable under center and did a nice job in grasping the Browns' game plan.
