The Pittsburgh Steelers are slated to get a significant part of their offense back in time for Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. Pittsburgh is expected to activate tight end Pat Freiermuth prior to Sunday’s game, according to NFL Media.
Freiermuth has been sidelined with a hamstring injury since Pittsburgh’s Week 4 loss to the Houston Texans. A 2021 second-round pick, Freiermuth’s absence has contributed to the Steelers ranking 29th in the NFL in passing yards and touchdown passes through nine games.
A former standout at Penn State, Freiermuth caught seven touchdown passes as a rookie while helping the Steelers make the playoffs during Ben Roethlisberger’s final season. He set career highs with 63 catches for 732 yards last season despite the Steelers changing quarterbacks during the season.
Freiermuth has already caught as many touchdown passes this year (two) as he did all of last season.
