Pittsburgh Steelers vs Cleveland Browns: Week 1 Interview with Still Curtain

Myles Garrett Could Miss Multiple Weeks With Ankle Injury, Is Officially A Member Of The Browns

Browns' top pick Garrett injures ankle during practice

The team announced that rookie pass rusher #Myles Garrett will not play against the Steelers after suffering a high ankle sprain.

Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports that it was a freak accident in practice that cause Garrett's high ankle sprain.

It wasn't until the mid-1980s that the pendulum swung back in favor of the Browns, as Cleveland closed out the 1980s with a 12-7 record against the Steelers, thanks to the Browns winning seven of the final eight games between the two teams in the decade.

STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - One of NFL's fiercest rivalries has been spiced up by recent events as Browns cut two-time Pro Bowl CB Joe Haden, who signed with Steelers hours later. He suffered a lateral foot sprain during a June minicamp practice but was cleared by the start of camp.

Before anyone called Garrett an injury-prone player, Browns head coach Hue Jackson was quick to point out that it could have happened to anyone.

The Browns-Steelers opening weekend match-up will have plenty of storylines to it. "You see a lot of guys who make that mistake and he just shrugs them off and he'll find a little escape hatch and extend the play, so make sure you get him low, try and stay above the knee". Still, Sunday marks the rookie debuts for two of Cleveland's top picks from the spring's draft. 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. With a win, Big Ben would do something no Browns quarterback has done since 1999.

"Myles is a good player for us", linebacker Christian Kirksey said. "Yes, he does, but if I know DeShone well, he is gearing up ready to play and excited about the opportunity".

Cleveland, .Browns, .Live, .Stream. nflstreamingnet/live-stream/pittsburgh-steelers-live-stream-football-game/. "He extends plays. When he extends the play, he is the most risky because now he is doing things that the timing of the scheme or the timing of the play from my part is off-kilter".

Ben Roethlisberger doesn't have to be told that the regular season is about to get under way.

"My biggest thing is always my peers", he said. "Create confusion for [Kizer] as far as different things they are seeing". "We will keep it within the family, move forward and we will work on winning". "I'm just blessed to have a group in front of me that's going to help protect that". Pittsburgh has won four straight over Cleveland, going 3-0-1 against the spread in those four contests.
