PITTSBURGH — Steelers center Mason Cole left the game against the Cleveland Browns with an undisclosed injury at the start of the third quarter, but returned to the game.
It came on a play where Kenny Pickett was sacked and Mason Cole got rolled up on by a Browns defender. He is getting his left ankle taped and could be set to head back in as he still has a helmet. In the past year, Cole has dealt with a foot injury that has hampered him at times. With him now back in, the Steelers line is at full strength.
Gunner Olszewski has a knee injury and he is doubtful to return to the game as a result. He suffered the injury on a jet sweep where he got twisted. With him out, Steven Sims and Miles Boykin are paved to see more playing time. His special teams’ snaps will be divided up amongst a multitude of players.
In addition, the Browns are dealing with multiple injuries. Denzel Ward will miss the rest of the game with a shoulder injury. Meanwhile, linebacker Reggie Ragland is out with a shoulder injury as well. That will end those players’ respective seasons. Martin Emerson and Sione Takitaki will see more playing time as a result.
