Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth is expected to be activated from injured reserve ahead of the Pittsburgh Steelers' Week 11 game against the Cleveland Browns, NFL Network Insider Tom Pelissero reports via Coral Smith of

Freiermuth initially injured his hamstring during the Steelers' Week 4 game against the Texans, and after taking a game off tried to be ready for Week 6. But in the leadup to the game Freiermuth aggravated the injury, and the setback was severe enough for Pittsburgh to place him on injured reserve on Oct. 21.

Freiermuth was designated to return to practice earlier this week, and was a limited participant in Wednesday's practice before participating in a full capacity on Thursday and Friday.

Head coach Mike Tomlin had said Tuesday he felt good about Freiermuth's availability for this week's game, and after seeing how the tight end looked during the week's practices, it appears they've decided he doesn't need any more time to get back up to speed before jumping back into game action.
