Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns preview and prediction

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns preview and prediction

Cabot indicates there is concern Garrett, the No. 1 overall draft pick, will be out for some time.

Garrett played with a sprained ankle at Texas A&M last season after missing two games with the injury.

Pittsburgh swept the season series from the Browns previous year, first winning in Cleveland 24-9, covering at -8, then at Heinz Field 27-24 in overtime. "I've been feeling like this since the beginning of training camp".

Coach Hue Jackson opened his news briefing by saying Garrett "was limited today with an ankle", but he did not provide any specifics about the injury other than to say the 21-year-old did not finish practice.

Brown, 29, has had plenty of chances to celebrate in the end zone over the last three seasons. You don't know exactly how long a player needs to recover. Pittsburgh linebacker T.J. Watt was good enough to win the starting job ahead of James Harrison, and running back James Conner will make his National Football League debut just one year after beating Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Again, I'm on the fence, but it would at least create some buzz for these games against the Steelers' most logical rival, a franchise that is just that short drive away.

Despite a drop in production and sacks, the Browns were satisfied Garrett was healthy and worth the first choice and investment when they selected him first overall despite the need for a quarterback.

"Myles is a good player for us", linebacker Christian Kirksey said. He knows how the injury happened and emphasized it could happen to anyone.

The Browns' back said that his mother was unable to evacuate in time because her flight got cancelled so they are going to ride the storm out.

Continuing last year's tradition I will continue to note whether or not the Browns are favored going into a given contest.

Meanwhile, Browns fans, who were right to feel the organization was finally in the process of turning things around, are understandably apoplectic by the Garrett news. "We're always trying to get better this time of year".

"We believe that the guys that are in that group have all been coached the same, so we believe in the guys that are going to step up and filling that role that Joe had", Kirksey said. "The next man up may do something better than the guy he just replaced but not as good as the guy he just replaced". Roethlisberger has 49 career 300-yard games in regular season.

Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers head into Cleveland in Week 1.

"The excitement, the attention to detail, sense of urgency, all those things are turned up a little bit", he said.
