The final injury report of the week is out for the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cleveland Browns. For the most part, the Steelers received good news going into their short-week showdown.
Linebacker Devin Bush practiced fully for the second consecutive day after being listed as a limited participant on Monday with a foot injury.
Fans might’ve been temporarily scared at seeing Minkah Fitzpatrick’s name on the injury report but Pittsburgh’s defensive star was only dealing with lower leg cramps. He was limited on Wednesday and is expected to play on Thursday Night.
On the other side of the football, the Steelers will face a blunted defensive front as the Browns won’t have Jadeveon Clowney at their disposal. The pass rusher has been declared out officially with an ankle injury. He’s the only player on both teams to carry a designated status.
Although the Steelers will face a Browns team that has plenty of names listed in the injury report, most are expected to play. That includes starters Jack Conklin and Joel Bitonio on offense and Myles Garrett on defense.
