The Pittsburgh Steelers are sitting pretty with regard to injuries heading into Week 1, unlike the Browns.

The Pittsburgh Steelers are preparing to play the Cleveland Browns, and the hope is they’ll have everyone available not just because it’s their first game of the 2017 regular season, but also because it’s their first AFC North divisional game of the year.

Getting started on the right foot will be critical for the Steelers, and having a healthy team is the ultimate goal for everyone during the regular season. After their Wednesday practice—the first time they have to report injuries prior to the game—the Steelers look to be extremely healthy.

Check out the Steelers’ brief injury report:

LIMITED PARTICIPATION
OT Jerald Hawkins (Knee)

But the same can’t be said of the Browns. Their injury list is much longer, but new reports of Myles Garrett’s ankle injury suggest the No. 1-overall draft pick won’t be playing in the Week 1 game due to its severity. Not good news for a team looking to make its own impression to start the 2017 regular season.
