PITTSBURGH — The Cleveland Browns announced their inactive players for their playoff match-up against the Pittsburgh Steelers and had some good news regarding the players listed as questionable leading up to the game.

Right tackle Jack Conklin, who was listed as questionable with a knee injury and illness, will play Sunday night—a huge break for the Browns offensive line which already took a hit with the loss of veteran guard Joel Bitonio.

Browns right guard Wyatt Teller and wide receiver Donovan Peoples-Jones are also active for Sunday night’s playoff game after being listed as questionable with an ankle injury and concussion, respectively.

Cornerback Terrance Mitchell is active as well after being listed as questionable for a non-injury related reason.

Here are the Browns inactives heading into the team’s first playoff appearance in 18 years:

  • WR Marvin Hall
  • CB Brian Allen
  • S Jovante Moffatt
  • S Tedric Thompson
  • T Alex Taylor
  • WR Ja'Marcus Bradley
  • DE Joe Jackson

The Browns are expected to start Robert Jackson at cornerback in place of Denzel Ward, who remains on the team’s reserve/COVID-19 list, and Michael Dunn at left guard for Bitonio, who is also on the reserve/COVID-19 list.

Here are the Steelers inactives heading into the game:

  • QB Josh Dobbs
  • S Antoine Brooks Jr.
  • RB Anthony McFarland
  • LB Jayrone Elliott
  • G Danny Isidora
  • DE Isaiah Buggs

The Browns will be led by Game Captain Myles Garrett, who has received the designation for the second straight week.
