Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers:
- The biggest news for the Browns this week is that ILB Craig Robertson is doubtful after suffering a knee injury last week against the Bengals. ILB Tank Carder is expected to make his first career start, and his only extended playing time in the regular season came in relief of Robertson last week.
- TE MarQueis Gray will be out for the second straight game, which could play a factor on the punt protection package again. DE Armonty Bryant is listed as questionable with a back injury. P Spencer Lanning had swelling in his knee on Tuesday, hence the reason for the punter tryouts on Thursday. Lanning is reportedly fine now, according to head coach Rob Chudzinski.
- S Shamarko Thomas, who had been seeing a fair amount of reps on defense for the Steelers, has been ruled out for the second straight week. DE Brett Keisel missed last week's game with a foot injury and did not practice Wednesday or Thursday. He was limited on Friday, though, and is listed as questionable. Earlier in the week, Mike Tomlin said that he expected Keisel and LB LaMarr Woodley to both play this week.
