Mike Wallace injury: Steelers wide receiver out vs. Browns

Gregory Shamus

Mike Wallace is not expected to play in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns. In his four-year NFL career, the wideout has never missed a game.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Mike Wallace will not play in Week 17 against the Cleveland Browns. He had previously been listed as questionable because of a hip strain he suffered last weekend against the Cincinnati Bengals.

Although Wallace has been unable to practice all week, many suspected that he would still be able to play on Sunday. In his four-year NFL career, Wallace has never missed a game.

Wallace will end the season with 64 receptions, 836 yards, and eight touchdowns. The yardage is his lowest total since his rookie year (2009). His yards-per-catch average (13.1) is a career low.

Still, Wallace leads the Steelers in receiving yards, touchdowns, and had the team's longest reception of the season (82 yards against the Tennessee Titans). In Wallace's absence, Antonio Brown and Emmanuel Sanders could see increased looks.

Wallace is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season, so this could be it for "60 Minutes".
