NFL Week 3 injuries: Browns’ Jadeveon Clowney ruled out for Week 3 matchup vs. Steelers

Two weeks into the 2022 NFL regular season and injuries are beginning to rear their ugly head. Dallas Cowboys tight end Dalton Schultz suffered a PCL injury on Sunday, the Denver Broncos saw two former Alabama stars in cornerback Pat Surtain II and wide receiver Jerry Jeudy go down with shoulder and rib injuries, respectively, and the Indianapolis Colts have some banged-up wideouts.

Below, we will break down the midweek injury reports, and the final injury report for Thursday night’s matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and Cleveland Browns.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns (-4.5)

There were just two players listed on the Steelers’ Week 3 injury report, but neither carried a game designation. Linebacker Devin Bush was limited on Monday with a foot injury, but returned as a full participant Tuesday and Wednesday. Star safety Minkah Fitzpatrick was added to the injury report on Wednesday as a limited participant with lower leg cramps, but he is expected to play. 

Clowney was the only Brown given a game designation on their Week 3 injury report, as he will not play Thursday night due to an ankle injury. However, offensive linemen Jack Conklin (knee), Chris Hubbard (illness) and Joel Bitonio (biceps) were limited participants in practice on Wednesday. 

Buffalo Bills (-5.5) at Miami Dolphins

The Bills just played Monday night, so they have some banged-up players as they quickly turn their attention to next Sunday. Cornerback Dane Jackson (neck), safety Micah Hyde (neck), tight end Dawson Knox (foot) and defensive tackle Jordan Phillips (hamstring) did not practice Wednesday. Buffalo had several limited participants as well: WR Gabe Davis (ankle), C Mitch Morse (elbow), DT Ed Oliver (ankle), S Jordan Poyer (foot) and DT Tim Settle (calf).
