There is good news and bad news in the Steelers injury report.
The bad news is guard David DeCastro (abdominal) and wide receiver Diontae Johnson (back) are both out for Sunday’s game against the 4-1 Browns.
The good news is that several other Steelers who were unable to practice earlier in the week will be good to go.
Maurkice Pouncey, who was out Wednesday with a foot injury, practiced in full along with tight end Eric Ebron who was dealing with a hand injury.
Full back Derek Watt and linebacker Marcus Allen, who missed last week’s game against the Eagles were full participants all week and will be ready to go on Sunday.
Kevin Dotson will get another start for the Steelers at right guard after DeCastro was unable to go at the beginning of the season.
The Steelers also potentially dodge a bullet with Pouncey being able to go since back-up center J.C. Hassenauer has seen only played a few snaps this season when Pouncey was out of the game late last Sunday.
Cleveland will be Pittsburgh’s toughest test of the season so far, winning four in a row after dropping their first game of the season.
The Steelers are trying to go to 5-0 for the first time since 1978.
Kickoff is at 1 p.m. at Heinz Field.
