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 this weekend.
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.
