Cleveland Browns inside linebacker Craig Robertson walked through the locker room with a brace on his right knee, but he did not practice Wednesday as the team prepared for Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Robertson hurt his knee in the loss to Cincinnati. He tried to return, but couldn't.

He has started every game at inside linebacker. Defensive coordinator Ray Horton has said that Robertson's abilities in coverage and against the run allow the Browns to do different things.

Robertson ranks third on the Browns with 70 tackles. With him out, Tank Carder moves into the lineup alongside D'Qwell Jackson. Carder has one start in two seasons with the Browns.

Coach Rob Chudzinski said the defense will "generally" be able to do the same things with Carder.

The Browns also announced that Armanti Edwards was placed on injured reserve with an ankle injury. Edwards had signed with the Browns on Oct. 29 and had shared time with Davone Bess returning punts.
