CLEVELAND — One unhappy resolution ended Damarious Randall’s night.
The Cleveland Browns safety used to be ejected from Thursday night’s 21-7 take over the Pittsburgh Steelers ensuing from a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers rookie receiver Diontae Johnson in the third quarter. The contact despatched Johnson to the locker room on a cart and out of the recreation with a concussion, and replays showed the disqualification used to be justified.
The bound strive fell incomplete simply a 2nd sooner than Randall arrived over the high, leading with his helmet at as soon as into Johnson’s, drawing a flag for pointless roughness and the hasty ejection.
Pittsburgh rode a collection of penalties against the Browns’ like a flash depleted secondary — which used to be compelled to play Juston Burris and rookie Sheldrick Redwine after shedding Randall and frail Morgan Burnett (Achilles) — to its first touchdown of the night on the equivalent possession.
