Here is a wrap-up of the injury situation for theheading into tonight's game against the
- The Browns will be without LG Joel Bitonio, CB Joe Haden, and SS Donte Whitner. Rookie first-round pick Cameron Erving will make his first start in place of Bitonio. CB Pierre Desir is expected to start for Haden, and either S Jordan Poyer or S Ibraheim Campbell will start for Whitner.
- The quarterback situation is still up-in-the-air for both teams. We could see Josh McCown or Johnny Manziel for Cleveland, and we could see Ben Roethlisberger or Landry Jones for Pittsburgh.
- FS Tashaun Gipson came down with an illness on Friday, so his status will be re-evaluated this weekend.
- The Steelers will be without four role players, with the most notable being reserve OLB James Harrison. This will be the first game that the 37-year old Harrison will have missed in 2015.
