Week 6 Injury Report (Browns)

The Steelers wrapped up their preparation for Sunday's game against the Cleveland Browns at Heinz Field and will be without guard David DeCastro and receiver Diontae Johnson, as both were ruled out.

DeCastro, who suffered an abdominal injury against the Philadelphia Eagles last week, will miss his third game of the season after being inactive the first two games of the season with a knee injury.

With DeCastro out of the lineup, look for Kevin Dotson to step in at guard once again, someone his teammates feel can get the job done.

"He showed that," said running back James Conner. "I believe in him. They believe in him. It doesn't matter, he has to get the job done."

Johnson took a hit to the back against the Eagles and missed practice on Wednesday and was limited on Thursday but held out once again on Friday.

Maurkice Pouncey (foot), JuJu Smith-Schuster (knee) and Eric Ebron (hand) who missed practice Wednesday, and T.J. Watt, who was limited Wednesday, were full participants for the second straight day and are not on the status report.   

Marcus Allen (foot) and Derek Watt (hamstring) were both full participants for the third straight day after missing last week's game against the Eagles.

For the Browns, quarterback Baker Mayfield and receivers Jarvis Landry and Odell Beckham, Jr. are all questionable.

The full injury report is below.
