BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Cleveland Browns star defensive end Myles Garrett didn’t practice Tuesday because of a neck injury, and it’s unclear whether the All-Pro will play in Thursday night’s game against the rival Pittsburgh Steelers.

Garrett needs just one more sack to pass Clay Matthews’ team career record. He was not practiced with left guard Joel Bitonio, who was dealing with a biceps injury, when the Browns began their short week.

Coach Kevin Stefanski said “we’ll see” when asked if Garrett or Bitonio would be available to face the Steelers (1-1).

The Browns are already going to be without Jadeveon Clowney and can’t afford to be without Garrett, one of the league’s best tight ends. Clowney injured his right ankle in the second half against the New York Jets on Sunday and will sit out against Pittsburgh.

Stefanski had no timetable for Clowney’s return.

Without Clowney, the Jets were able to turn extra attention to Garrett, who had to sit out a few games to catch his breath. The Browns couldn’t get enough pressure on Jets quarterback Joe Flacco, who threw a touchdown pass in the final 1:22 as New York overcame a 13-point deficit to win 31-30.

The Browns also placed tight end Jesse James (biceps) and defensive end Chase Vinovich (hamstring) on ​​injured reserve. They will have to miss at least four games. Stefanski said he doesn’t yet know if either player will miss the rest of the season.
