While the Pittsburgh Steelers have declared quarterbacks Ben
Roethlisberger and Byron Leftwich out for Sunday’s matchup against the
Cleveland Browns, the team has safety Troy Polamalu listed as doubtful and wide
receiver Antonio Brown as questionable to play.
Polamalu was able to return to practice for the first time
in seven weeks, but he remains doubtful to play Sunday due to a calf injury.
This is still promising for the Steelers as it increases Polamalu’s chances of
returning next weekend against the Baltimore Ravens.
Brown has been hampered by a sprained ankle, but he was able
to practice at a limited capacity for the third straight day. The wide receiver
told reporters he had a good week of practice and there’s a chance he plays
Roethlisberger (shoulder), Leftwich (ribs) and wide receiver
Jerricho Cotchery (ribs) have all been ruled out, while running back Isaac
Redman (concussion), safety Will Allen (shoulder) and defensive end Ziggy Hood
(back) are all probable to play.
