BEREA, Ohio (WKBN)- According to ESPN and multiple reports, the Browns will be without one of their defensive standouts in their Week 3 game with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland Browns head coach Kevin Stefanski announced Monday that Jadeveon Clowney will miss the game because he suffered a right ankle injury from chasing New York Jets quarterback Joe Flacco in the team’s late game collapse on Sunday.
Clowney has 1.5 sacks this season, and he finished with nine sacks last season.
According to ESPN, the Browns will also be without defensive end Chase Winovich.
