According to their final injury report that was released Friday afternoon, the Cleveland Browns will have a banged up defense that will be missing a few starters Sunday when they host the Pittsburgh Steelers at FirstEnergy Field.
In addition to being without defensive end Phillip Taylor (knee) this week, the Browns also ruled out defensive end Billy Winn (quadricep) on Friday after he failed to practice all week. Also ruled out Friday was wide receiver Rodney Smith (hamstring).
Listed as questionable by the Browns are defensive lineman Ahtyba Rubin (ankle), cornerback Joe Haden (hip) and linebacker Paul Kruger (back). Haden, however, was able to practice limited Friday and several believe he will play Sunday against the Steelers baring any setbacks. Kruger was unable to work Friday while Rubin was limited.
Practicing fully Friday and listed as probable are defensive end Desmond Bryant (wrist), tight end Jordan Cameron (ankle, shoulder), safety Tashaun Gipson (shoulder), guard John Greco (knee), linebacker Eric Martin (not injury related), linebacker Barkevious Mingo (shoulder), cornerback Buster Skrine (thumb), running back Ben Tate (finger) and tackle Joe Thomas (not injury related).
