Wimbley won't play today

Kamerion Wimbley won't play in the game against the Steelers today because he is ill with the flu. He has been the Browns best defensive player this year, so this will not be easy to overcome.

Wimbley was added to the injury report Saturday. Wimbley was with the team on the bus ride to Pittsburgh on Saturday. When he was no better this morning the Browns sent him back to Cleveland.

Jason Trusnik, the linebacker acquired from the Jets in the Braylon Edwards trade Oct. 7, will start in place of Wimbley.

. . . Rashard Mendenhall is going to start in place of Willie Parker at running back for the Steelers. You can expect Mendenhall to run straight at Trusnik.

The sun is breakling through the clouds a little more than an hour before kickoff. Coach Eric Mangini was hoping for rainy, sloppy conditions.
