Ben, Pouncey have a "shot" this week

Coach Mike Tomlin is not ready to rule out many players this week as the Steelers prepare to take on the Cleveland Browns on Sunday at 4:15 p.m., but two players not likely to play are running back Mewelde Moore and center/guard Doug Legursky.

"Some guys probably on the outside looking in from a health standpoint…Mewelde Moore continues to work his way back from his MCL sprain," said Tomlin. "Doug Legursky is probably going to be a week away with his left shoulder. We'll make the necessary adjustments there.

"All the other guys that have existing injuries or missed the last performance due to injury are in play as we sit here today."

Among the players Tomlin said have a "shot" this week are center Maurkice Pouncey, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders and linebacker LaMarr Woodley.

"Hopefully we get all of those guys back," said Tomlin. "It's our intention right now if the guys are healthy enough to practice and prepare, of course we will play them."
