- OG Jason Pinkston has been ruled out with a concussion, and OG Shawn Lauvao missed the final two days of practice with a thigh injury. OG John Greco is expected to start for the first time since he hurt his knee, and there's a chance that OG Garrett Gilkey will get a start if Lauvao can't go.
- The Browns will be thinner on the defensive line, as NT Phil Taylor is out with a concussion and DL John Hughes is doubtful to play. Expect more action for DE Armonty Bryant, NT Ishmaa'ily Kitchen, and even the newly-signed DE Brian Sanford.
- TE Jordan Cameron was limited in practice on Friday and might be able to return after suffering a concussion two weeks ago. CB Joe Haden will be a game-time decision after not practicing all week.
- The Steelers aren't missing any significant contributors.
