Burress was re-signed earlier this week by the Steelers, who drafted him in 2000. Burress was needed because of injuries to Brown (ankle) and Jerricho Cotchery (ribs). Emmanuel Sanders will start for Brown, who was listed as questionable all week and was limited in practice.
Browns cornerback Joe Haden is active after missing last week's game in Dallas with an abdominal injury. Also, cornerback Buster Skrine will play after sustaining a concussion last week.
