CLEVELAND (AP) -Browns guard Seth McKinney will not play against Pittsburgh and guard Eric Steinbach was listed as questionable Friday, the first shake-up on a line that has led the way for Cleveland's surprising turnaround on offense.
Ryan Tucker, who hasn't played guard since the late '90s with the Rams, most likely will start in McKinney's place Sunday. Lennie Friedman would start if Steinbach is unavailable, and both Isaac Sowells and Nat Dorsey could see playing time.
McKinney did not practice all week because of a shoulder injury from last Sunday's win over Seattle. Steinbach strained his back during practice Wednesday, missed practice Thursday and is day-to-day.
The guards signed as free agents in the offseason and have helped stabilize the offensive line after years of injuries and lineup changes.
The Browns used the same five starters in their first eight games. Derek Anderson has been sacked just seven times over the last seven games while throwing 16 touchdowns.
