Browns dodge a bullet; Steelers Cameron Heyward set to miss MNF matchup

Still riding the high of their first Week 1 home opener win since 2004, the Cleveland Browns look to have caught another break heading into Week 2. Set to take on the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road, the 0-1 division rivals will be without one of their best defensive players as defensive tackle Cameron Heyward is set to miss a few weeks with a hamstring injury.

For a player that historically completely uproots any guard across from him, even All-Pro Joel Bitonio, this is a huge blow for the Steelers. This game has the makings of a trap game for the Browns, however, as Pittsburgh will look to get the sour taste of a blowout out of their mouths while the Browns have to refocus after a blowout win of their own.

There is still a ton of defensive talent on the Pittsburgh defensive line, with the likes of T.J. Watt, Alex Highsmith, former Brown Larry Ogunjobi, and more, but the loss of Heyward is not negligible.
