Cleveland Browns Vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Which Team Has The Health Edge?

Injury Advantage: Browns Rushing Offense

The Browns enter Monday night with the third-most rushing yards thus far this season.

The Steelers, meanwhile, have given up the most rushing yards of any defense.
Expect that script to continue, especially with Pittsburgh down two defensive linemen and key inside linebacker Joe Schobert. Schobert’s backup Buddy Johnson will also miss the game with a foot injury.

Run stoppers Tyson AluAlu and Stephon Tuitt were placed on IR early in the season, leaving Isaiah Buggs and Chris Wormley to fill in. Buggs missed last week on the COVID reserve list and Wormley will miss this week’s game with COVID-19.

The Browns, meanwhile, will likely have their running back duo intact for the first time since Week 14. Kareem Hunt is questionable for the game with a high ankle sprain he suffered Week 14. We expect him to play and have his usual role in the passing game. Nick Chubb should be in for a big day on the ground after he’s rushed for 91 and 126 yards in the past two weeks, respectively.
