There was a collective holding of breaths this week as head coach Kevin Stefanski could not be more optimistic than, “We’ll see” when discussing whether or not Myles Garrett and Joel Bitonio would be able to suit up as the Cleveland Browns take on the Pittsburgh Steelers.
As it turns out, however, neither were given injury designations leading up to the game. NFL teams are not allowed to falsify or hide injuries from their reports, so this would seem to indicate it is full steam ahead for the two leaders of the team. Not only that, but right tackle Jack Conklin was not on the injury report either, signifying he may be making his first start since his season-ending knee injury a year ago.
On a night where Joe Haden is set to be honored by both the Browns and Steelers, he will at least get to see both of his remaining former teammates play in long snapper Charlie Hughlett and now Bitonio as well.
The icing on the cake would be a 2-1 record for the Browns by the time the clock strikes zero.
