CLEVELAND—Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said he would look at roster changes, particularly on defense, for Thursday’s game against the Browns.

It turns out it didn't happen until the second series.

Everything was status quo for Pittsburgh's 11 defensive starters on the first series. But cornerback William Gay was replaced by rookie Joe Burnett in the second series and will probably be rotated throughout the game.

Burnett received playing time towards the end of last week's loss to the Oakland Raiders when Gay suffered a concussion.
