Snap Count Review: Browns' depth at safety tested in major way during 2nd half vs. Steelers

We're breaking down who played how much in Thursday's win over the Steelers.

-- The Browns were down to their last two safeties for much of the second half because of an injury to Morgan Burnett and Damarious Randall's ejection. That meant rookie Sheldrick Redwine received the most significant playing time of his career, logging 33 snaps. Juston Burris played 42.

-- Joe Schobert, Mack Wilson and Denzel Ward played all 74 snaps.

-- Chad Thomas, in his second start in place of Olivier Vernon, played 57 snaps. He collected his third sack of the season in another solid performance.

-- Cleveland relied on its rotational defensive linemen, too, as Chris Smith (29), Devaroe Lawrence (28) and Eli Ankou (13) all saw significant action.

-- Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt both saw their usage increase from Sunday. Chubb was on the field for 51 snaps while Hunt played 39.

-- Rashard Higgins got the most snaps among WRs not named Odell Beckham Jr. and Jarvis Landry. He played 29 snaps.

-- Stephen Carlson played 12 snaps at tight end, none bigger than third-and-goal late in the fourth quarter when he caught the first touchdown pass of his career.

-- The Browns used the same starting offensive line combination for a third straight game and they didn't miss a snap.
