Ebron and Marsh will now both be available to play when the Steelers host the Cleveland Browns on Sunday for their opening round playoff game. They were placed on the Reserve/COVID-19 list five days ago, along with cornerback Joe Haden, who tested positive and will miss the game.
Ebron missed the Steelers’ Week 17 loss to the Browns, but has been a productive addition to the Pittsburgh offense this season. He has caught 56 passes for 558 yards and five touchdowns this season c becoming a reliable security blanket for quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
After spending time with the Indianapolis Colts and Jacksonville Jaguars this season, Marsh signed with the Steelers on Dec. 9 and was activated on Dec. 14. He made a pair of stops in Pittsburgh’s Week 16 win over the Colts.
