Browns rookie QB gets Steelers challenge

Browns' top pick Garrett injures ankle during practice

The Pittsburgh Steelers activated running back Le'Veon Bell in advance of the opener Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, but veteran linebacker Steven Johnson was a casualty of the process.

Myles Garrett (left) will not be playing for a while.

"Some teams are building for the future, we are building for right now", Roethlisberger said Tuesday on his weekly appearance on 93.7 The Fan.

Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer reports the Browns fear Garrett's injury "is serious", and that "he could miss four weeks or more". In fact, the Browns were one of the worst defenses in the National Football League a year ago and are now facing a juggernaut.

Coleman, who caught four passes for 66 yards in the team's dress rehearsal game against Tampa Bay, missed six games as a rookie with a broken hand. This season, it's Garrett.

"He's looking like the first overall pick", he said. Jackson credited their unbeaten run to the different mentality of his players.

"I wouldn't expect anything differently in this game because they want to test him".

Since the Browns came back as a franchise in 1999, they have had double-digit loss seasons 14 times in 18 tries. A hit on Colt McCoy that nobody on the Browns sideline saw changed the NFL's concussion protocols.

Kessler went on to play in nine games and start eight. That was not the original "teeny tiny break" though; cornerback Daylon McCutcheon had surgery and pins in a thumb and a cast out to his waist after incurring a "teeny tiny" break in his thumb. Aside from the Browns, the Baltimore Ravens, Denver Broncos, and the Seattle Seahawks finished the preseason with 4-0 marks.

At least it would make this back into a rivalry again, the way the Turnpike Rivalry really was for small spans of time in the 1970s and 80s. Coach Mike Tomlin said Bell's week of practice would determine workload vs. Browns. "This game is all about being malicious and violent". When Garrett returns, he will have the same traits he has now. The Steelers see Kizer as a talented thrower who's a good fit for coach Hue Jackson's vertical passing offense.

"Big Ben!" Garrett told Randy Moss on April 28 in an ESPN interview. The Steelers know he is in for quite the battle, and placing their trust in Watt by granting him starting duties this early in the season shows they are not willing to wait for rookies to prove themselves as they have in the past. So expect a fully committed Big Ben to put his body on the line in pursuit of a third Super Bowl ring. Hell, it would just be nice to win on Opening Day for once.

"Everybody just has to be patient, but he will be fine", Williams said.
