Steelers Afternoon Drive: Reacting to Late-Breaking Injury News




Welcome to the Steelers Afternoon Drive, our new daily podcast featuring all the latest Steelers news.

Alan Saunders is parked at Acrisure Stadium, but he and Derrick Bell took a Steelers Afternoon Drive just before the Pittsburgh Steelers took on the Cleveland Browns at Acrisure Stadium on Monday. Alan and Derrick broke down the flurry of pre-game news stories, with the Black and Gold placing Diontae Johnson and Anthony McFarland Jr. on the injured reserve list just before the game and calling running back Qadree Ollison up from the practice squad. Johnson and McFarland will each miss at least the next four weeks.

How will the Steelers offense be able to adjust, while also trying to get right after a disastrous first game against the San Francisco 49ers. The visiting Browns have injury problems of their own. Star receiver Amari Cooper suffered a groin injury in practice on Saturday and is questionable to play. His absence could be the thing the Steelers need to keep Cleveland one-dimensional and hone in on stopping running back Nick Chubb. The stakes haven’t been higher for a Week 2 game in some, as Mike Tomlin’s squad has in ints hands the chance to change from a disastrous 0-2 start to a 1-1 rebound game with a win over the Browns.
