Browns get big pass protector injury update before Steelers game

We already know the Cleveland Browns won’t have quarterback Deshaun Watson and will start rookie Dorian Thompson-Robinson for their Week 11 matchup with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

However, the Browns did get a positive injury update ahead of this crucial AFC North showdown, as it now seems like right tackle Dawand Jones will be ready to go Sunday.

“#Browns Dawand Jones (knee, shoulder) back in practice today on #Steelers Thursday,”’s Mary Kay Cabot reported ahead of the Browns-Steelers game.

This Browns’ injury update is obviously good news and more important than ever with a fifth-round rookie making his second NFL start.

Fourth-round rookie tackle Dawand Jones is already his team’s Plan B at the position. The only reason he is the starter is that All-Pro RT Jack Conklin went out for the season with a knee injury in Week 1.

The last time Thompson-Robinson started, back in Week 4 against the Baltimore Ravens, the QB went 19-of-36 (52.7%) for 121 yards with three interceptions, four sacks, and no touchdowns.
