Snap Count Review: Thin Browns secondary puts in a full day of work in Pittsburgh

Cleveland's defensive backs play nearly every snap in loss to Steelers

We're breaking down who played how much in Sunday's loss to the Steelers.

— Cleveland's secondary entered the game without two of its safeties, Ronnie Harrison Jr. and Karl Joseph. That meant a full workload for the entire back end of the defense, as Andrew Sendejo and Denzel Ward played all 65 snaps and Sheldrick Redwine and Terrance Mitchell played all but one.

Kevin Johnson has reclaimed his role as the team's nickel cornerback. He played 42 snaps.

B.J. Goodson led all of the LBs with 57 snaps while Malcolm Smith (34), Mack Wilson (31) and Sione Takitaki (21) rotated in and out of the game.

Larry Ogunjobi and Olivier Vernon played 85 percent of the snaps to lead the defensive linemen. Ogunjobi missed last week's game with an abdomen injury but showed no ill effects.

Baker Mayfield played 42 snaps before he was lifted from the game. Case Keenum played the final 15.

Harrison Bryant (21) and David Njoku (23) continued to split reps at the No. 2 TE spot.

Kareem Hunt played 30 of a possible 57 snaps while D'Ernest Johnson got on the field for 17.

— With the Browns emphasizing the pass because of the deficit they faced throughout the game, FB Andy Janovich (7) was not utilized as much as previous weeks.

— Game captain Tavierre Thomas logged a whopping 26 special teams snaps, the most of any player in Sunday's game.
