The Steelers next game is a big one and their opponent is expected to be without one of their key pieces.
When Pittsburgh and Cleveland meet for the first time since the Browns Wild Card Round win, running back Kareem Hunt will not be able to be in action, according to several reports, including NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.
Hunt suffered a calf injury in Cleveland loss to Arizona on Sunday. Prior to the injury, Hunt rushed for 66 yards on 14 carriers in the game. He has a total of 361 yards off 69 carries for an average of 5.2 yards per on the season. His absence could greatly impact a Browns offense that relies on its ground game to set up the passing attack and often goes to Hunt to finish off scoring drives, which has led to 5 touchdowns for the 26-year-old NFL veteran.
With both teams currently holding 3-3 records, their matchup in two weeks will certainly impact the standings. Cleveland will face Denver next week before battling the Steelers on Sunday, Oct. 31 at 1 pm.
