Freiermuth (knee) suffered a sprain during Sunday's 28-14 win over the Browns, Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports.
What it means:
Freiermuth was forced out of Sunday's season finale with a left knee sprain before recording a catch, but he's at least avoided a worst-case scenario injury. Gerry Dulac of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports that Freiermuth has an ACL and MCL sprain, but won't need surgery. What remains to be seen is whether Freiermuth will be ready for the start of offseason activities. He racked up 63 catches for 732 and two touchdowns on 98 targets in his second NFL season.
