Jason Miller

Brandon Weeden, Trent Richardson and Colt McCoy will all miss Week 17's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Thaddeus McCoy will get his first career start. Byron Leftwich is out for the Steelers.

The Cleveland Browns will look to finish their season on a winning note, but to do it they'll face quite the uphill climb. According to the Browns' official Twitter account, quarterbacks Brandon Weeden and Colt McCoy, as well as running back Trent Richardson, will miss Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Weeden and McCoy both remain sidelined with shoulder injuries, while Richardson will sit out with a sprained ankle. As was reported Friday, third-string quarterback Thaddeus Lewis will start for the Browns. The team also signed former Buccaneers quarterback Josh Johnson to serve as Lewis' back up.

Meanwhile, the Steelers enter the regular-season finale in relatively good health, as backup quarterback Byron Leftwich and backup cornerback Justin King are listed as the Steelers' notable inactives.

Backup wide receiver David Gilreath, defensive back Curtis Brown and linebacker Marshal McFadden are also listed among the Steelers' inactives. Kickoff from Heinz Field is set for 1 p.m. ET and can be seen on CBS.
