Player: Charlie Frye - Cleveland Browns

Next Opponent: Pittsburgh Steelers

Charlie Frye is likely to sit out this weekend, as the Browns travel to Pittsburgh to face their most bitter AFC North rivals. The results of the MRI on his injured wrist aren't back yet, but it is likely that the injury will force him to sit out at least one week. And as if that wasn't bad enough, it turns out that Frye also injured his ankle when left tackle Kevin Shaffer fell on him.

Outlook: Even if Frye starts on Thursday, he will likely be limited. And that's a scary thought considering the Browns' signal caller is already one of the most inept starting quarterbacks in the league. Worse still is the fact that Frye's absence will likely hinder the production of both wide receiver Braylon Edwards and tight end Kellen Winslow Jr.

Lastly, don't be fooled into starting running back Reuben Droughns. Even though he is likely to take on extra carries due to Frye's absence, Droughns is going up against a top 10 rush defense.
