For their big AFC North game Sunday, the Pittsburgh Steelers offense will be without a reigning Pro Bowl selection and a second-team All Pro from last season, Chris Adamski of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review reports.

David DeCastro and Diontae Johnson on Friday were ruled out of Sunday’s game against the Cleveland Browns. Neither practiced Friday because of injuries suffered during the first half of last week’s victory against the Philadelphia Eagles.

Right guard DeCastro suffered an abdominal injury and will miss a game for the third time this season. He sat out the Weeks 1-2 contests because of a knee injury suffered during training camp.

Johnson suffered a back injury returning a punt against the Eagles. He was a limited practice participant Thursday, offering optimism he might be able to play against the Browns. But Johnson, a receiver who was second-team All Pro in 2019 for punt returns, will miss a game because of injury for the first time in his two-season NFL career.
