The Pittsburgh Steelers are still without three starting defensive players, but the Cleveland Browns could be without three defensive starters of their own Sunday.

After Friday's practice, the Browns released their final status report which included two defensive players who could have a huge impact on the game Sunday.

Pro Bowl cornerback Joe Haden is listed as questionable with a hip injury that has been bothering him for weeks, and was re-aggravated last week against the Tennessee Titans. If Haden is unable to play, it was announced today that rookie Justin Gilbert would be the starter in Haden's spot.

Joining Haden is outside linebacker Paul Kruger who is also questionable with a back injury. Head coach Mike Pettine did not state how Kruger injured his back, but did say if he was unable to play, Eric Martin would take over his reps within the defense.

Other notable injuries include Ahtyba Rubin (ankle) who also is questionable while Billy Winn (quad) joins defensive end Phil Taylor (knee) as out for Sunday's contest.

The Browns host the Steelers at 1 p.m. ET Sunday.
