Browns and Steelers might both be without their top WRs for Monday Night Football

by Moxieplay

One week into the 2023 NFL season and teams are dealing with a concerning amount of injuries, particularly to top players. This week, the Los Angeles Chargers will be without Austin Ekeler and the Green Bay Packers will likely not have Aaron Jones at their disposal.

For Monday Night Football, the Pittsburgh Steelers were already going to be missing their best wide receiver, Diontae Johnson. Now, it’s become a late doubt whether their second-best receiver, George Pickens, will be suiting up. Pickens was added to the injury report on Saturday after practicing in full the first two times, which is never a good sign.

With Johnson and Pickens possibly out, that would leave the Steelers very shorthanded at wideout. Veteran Allen Robinson and unproven Calvin Austin III will have to step up.

The Browns are in the same boat

In a normal world, those injuries would give the Cleveland Browns the clear edge at wide receiver, but that my not be the case. Like Pickens, Pro Bowler Amari Cooper was a late addition to the injury report, with head coach Kevin Stefanski saying that the pass-catcher aggravated his groin during Saturday’s practice.

Neither Cooper or Pickens have been officially ruled out, but their statuses for Monday night are very much in doubt now.

The matchup between the Browns and Steelers was always expected to be more of a defensive, low-scoring battle. With the Browns missing their top receiver and the Steelers missing their top two, offensive fireworks will be hard to come by, at least in the passing game.
