Cleveland Browns name 7 inactive for game against Pittsburgh Steelers
As the Cleveland Browns prepare to face the Pittsburgh Steelers, they named seven inactive which will not fit. A few injuries, a few players who are buried on the depth chart, and a surprise who played through the first two weeks of the season.
The Browns are definitely in need of a rebounding performance after squandering a two-point lead with less than two minutes left against the New York Jets on Sunday. Regardless, they have a chance of leaving FirstEnergy Stadium with a 2-1 record by the time the clock strikes zero.

Kellen Mond was claimed by the Browns after being released by the Minnesota Vikings in the cuts. However, buried behind Jacoby Brissett and Joshua Dobbs, there is little reason for Mond to dress up at this point.
Michael Woods II is yet to play a live football match after missing most training camps and all pre-season games. While there is hope for Woods to make an appearance soon, it seems his trail is long.
After starting as the Browns’ punt return man the past two games, Felton is now listed as inactive as they activated Chester Rogers from the practice squad. It’s not too exciting news for his side as his place on the roster might be closer to the 53rd man than expected.
Signed to be the swing tackle in 2023, the Browns have enough depth along the offensive line that they don’t need to dress Joe Haeg at this point. With the return of Jack Conklin, another offensive lineman is eliminated from the roster. This week it’s Haeg and next on the list.
Chris Hubbard’s best days are behind him as he nears the end of his career. It’s nice to have a player with his experience in an emergency, but with their current depth at the position, it’s better for the Browns to keep him on the ice unless absolutely necessary.
After rolling his ankle against the Jets, Jadeveon Clowney was almost immediately ruled out on a short week. The good news, however, is that he was not placed on injured reserve. This means he could return as soon as next week instead of four weeks.
