Updated Week 17 Injury Report (Browns)

Updated, Saturday, Jan. 2: Defensive tackle Cameron Heyward, linebacker T.J. Watt and center Maurkice Pouncey have all been downgraded to OUT. Those three, along with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, kicker Chris Boswell and safety Terrell Edmunds will not make the trip to Cleveland.

The Cleveland Browns also announced the following moves:
Signed:
G Blake Hance (from the Jets' practice squad)

Activated from Reserve/COVID-19:
S Karl Joseph

Elevated from practice squad:
G Cordell Iwuagwu (standard elevation)
LB Montrel Meander (COVID-19 replacement)
T Alex Taylor (COVID-19 replacement)

In addition, Browns offensive line coach Bill Callahan and assistant offensive line coach Scott Peters will not coach in Sunday's game due to COVID-19 protocols. Coaching assistant Ryan Cordell will handle the offensive line's game day coaching responsibilities.

Friday, Jan. 1: The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns, the final regular season game of the season, but moved indoors at the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex once again because of a cold, icy rain in Pittsburgh.

With the team already clinching a playoff spot, and the AFC North Division, there is potential for resting several players, with Coach Mike Tomlin already confirming that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger won't start and he sat out practice for the third-straight day, not injury related. He was officially ruled out for the game by the team on Friday afternoon.

Safety Terrell Edmunds (shoulder) missed practice for the third straight day, while kicker Chris Boswell (groin) also didn't practice on Friday, missing for the second straight day after being a full participant on Wednesday. Both players have been ruled out of Sunday's game.

Receiver Diontae Johnson missed practice on Friday, listed with an illness.

Also not practicing on Friday were center Maurkice Pouncey, linebacker T.J. Watt, and defensive tackle Cameron Heyward, none of them injury related.

Defensive ends Stephon Tuitt (back) and Tyson Alualu (ankle), and linebackers Marcus Allen (stinger) and Ola Adeniyi (shoulder) were full participants and aren't on the status report.

The full injury report is below.
