Browns-Steelers Injury Report: John Hughes Out, Desmond Bryant Doubtful

John Rieger-USA TODAY Sports

Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for the Cleveland Browns heading into this week's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers:

  • The Browns will be a bit thinner on the defensive line, as DE Desmond Bryant is doubtful after having wrist surgery a few weeks ago, and DE John Hughes has been ruled out. Hughes was the surprise injury this week, but the hamstring issue must be too significant to be able to play with. This is where the defensive line being the deepest position on the team is a benefit, though.

  • OG Paul McQuistan is out, but he is only a reserve linemen. All of the other Browns should be ready to play. The Steelers' only injury of note is WR Lance Moore, who is out with a groin injury.

The full injury and practice report for Cleveland vs. Pittsburgh is below.
