The Cleveland Browns could be without starting left tackle Greg Robinson during Sunday’s rematch against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Robinson was placed in the concussion protocol on Wednesday. The sixth-year player reported to the training facility Wednesday morning with concussion symptoms.
On Tuesday, Robinson volunteered during the team’s off-day at the Greater Cleveland Food Bank.

If Robinson is unable to play Sunday, Justin McCray would likely start at left tackle.
Robinson has appeared in all 11 games for the Browns this season. He has started at left tackle in 10 of those games.
McCray has appeared in 10 games for the Browns this season, starting two of them.
The Browns rank 15th in the NFL with 27 sacks allowed.
However, the team has only allowed 39 quarterback hits, which is the third-lowest in the league.
The Steelers enter Week 13 ranked third in the NFL with 38 sacks on the season. Steelers linebacker T.J. Watt is third in the NFL with 11.5 sacks this season. Fellow Steelers Bud Dupree has 7 sacks and Cameron Heyward has 6.5.
Last year, Robinson played in all 16 games for the Browns. In 2017, he started six games for the Detroit Lions after an ankle injury forced him to miss time. He was placed on injured reserve after the Lions waived him in November 2017.
Robinson becomes an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season.
