Pittsburgh Steelers continue the square off against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday Night Football. Towards the end of the third quarter, starting cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon left the field with a hamstring injury. Per Steelers Senior Director of Communications Burt Lauten, Witherspoon has been ruled out for the rest of the game.

In the game, Witherspoon had five tackles and a pass defensed through almost 3 quarters. With Witherspoon out, Levi Wallace looks to step in to Witherspoon‘s role on the Steelers defense.
