Pittsburgh Steelers tight end Pat Freiermuth is tracking to play in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns after the team activated his window to return from injured reserve.

Freiermuth has missed the team’s last five games with a hamstring injury, but the Steelers have prevailed, getting out to a 6-3 start this season.

With the Steelers potentially getting Freiermuth back, the team’s offense will be healthy for the first time since Week 1. 

This is a great sign for the Steelers, especially since they’ll be facing a backup quarterback on the other side with Deshaun Watson done for the season. The odds in this game have moved towards Pittsburgh, and I expect the team to win this matchup.
