Again, I'm not in the least concerned with the outcome as Pittsburgh will win; I'll watch the game and only pay attention to how the Steelers will perform at a few spots.

Joe Haden-The ex-Brown and new Steeler starting CB will be on a mission in his first game against his former team. Garrett sustained a lateral sprain to his left foot during minicamp while pressuring former Browns quarterback Brock Osweiler.

Garrett had gone through camp and the preseason healthy and was slated to be a big part of what the Browns hope will be a much-improved defense. The Browns' brief statement said an update on Garrett's status and progress will be provided "in a couple weeks". Haden joins a line of Cleveland pro sports athletes who left for rival teams, and if he happens to make a big play or two, it's going viral.

By releasing Haden instead of being patient in the trade market, the Browns did not get a single asset in return, and since Sashi Brown took over control of the 53-man roster on January 3, 2016, acquiring picks in the NFL Draft has been of utmost importance in Berea. This could get ugly, but it'll still be an entertaining game to open up your day on Sunday. That includes playoff wins over the Browns in both 1994 and 2002.

Though they are under no delusions that their team would actually be good this year, Myles Garrett is expected to give them something to cheer about-a sack here, a forced fumble there. "Yes, he does, but if I know DeShone well, he is gearing up ready to play and excited about the opportunity".

Another first overall pick, Courtney Brown, dealt with injury after injury. Go back to 2000 and Tim Couch, another first overall pick, broke his thumb in practice when his hand hit a defensive player's helmet. "I'm going to take the opportunities that are given to me".

Garrett's comments are fine with Jackson, but the Browns coach added after delivering the news on Garrett's health: "Now he has to back it up". "He wouldn't be the first, he was not the first or the last person to talk about trying to get me". Pittsburgh's offense averaged 24.9 points during the regular season. "We will keep it within the family, move forward and we will work on winning". I step out there in all of the preseason games that I play, and I look at guys that I have been watching on TV since I have been young.

"My bold prediction, I really feel like Myles can make the Pro Bowl his rookie year". Those dreams of Garrett planting Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will have to wait until Week 17.
