Pittsburgh Steelers' Antonio Brown unveils new touchdown celebration

That record afforded Cleveland the top pick in April's National Football League draft-they chose defensive end Myles Garrett from Texas A&M with that pick.

Garrett is going to miss the first few games of the season, but the Browns should count themselves lucky he didn't suffer a serious injury. Garrett sustained a lateral sprain to his left foot during minicamp while pressuring former Browns quarterback Brock Osweiler.

With Mike Mitchell slowly returning from a lower-body injury that kept him out of training camp entirely, Wilcox could go from a reserve role in Tampa Bay to a starter in Pittsburgh in the span of a week. He missed time during his final year at Texas A&M with a left ankle sprain.

Garrett is set to undergo tests on his ankle, but the Cleveland Plain Dealer is reporting team sources believe the injury is serious. "(Maurkice) Pouncey, then (Marcus) Gilbert, then Antonio (Brown), those dudes hit me as soon as I got released, 'Joe, come to the Steelers'". I don't know that Gregg Williams will necessarily change the gameplan or the rotation much, but the players who sub for Garrett will have to get pressure to keep getting reps.

It's the second year in a row that the Browns lost their highest draft pick to injury. Again, I'm on the fence, but it would at least create some buzz for these games against the Steelers' most logical rival, a franchise that is just that short drive away. That discrepancy between the two teams seems like the biggest obstacle to the Browns staying close in this one, even at home.

Picking Up The Slack - With rookie defensive end Myles Garrett out Sunday, and for the foreseeable future, there are concerns about how the Browns can find a way to replace him. With Pryor gone, the Browns will start Derrick Kindred together with first-round safety Jabril Peppers in their secondary.

The path many of these players took to the Steelers 2017 opening day roster is an equally varied one. I'm not going to be alone in this.

Just when it wasn't possible for the Steelers to get better heading into 2018, they did just that.

Last year, Brown scored 12 receiving touchdowns for the Steelers which is one shy of his career high in that category. "But I don't know until we start playing".

"Yeah, we're going across his head, regardless of cost", Warren said at the time.

The Steelers won 24-10 and would finish the regular season with a 15-1 record.

"My bold prediction, I really feel like Myles can make the Pro Bowl his rookie year".

"Those things happen sometimes when you're out there practicing".
