BEREA Garry Gilliam Jersey , Ohio (AP) — Le’Veon Bell and the Pittsburgh Steelers are at odds, battling and bickering over money. It’s a football family fight.

The Browns won’t play peacemakers.

“They can beat each other up for all we care,” Cleveland coach Hue Jackson said Wednesday. “It does not matter.”

But Bell’s absence from Sunday’s season opener between the AFC North neighbors could have a major impact on Cleveland’s chances of ending a 17-game losing streak — and perhaps infuse a little life into a dormant rivalry.

Bell still hasn’t joined his teammates as the Pro Bowl running back continues his holdout for a new contract. The stare-down between the sides has reached a critical juncture — and either a breaking or turning point — as the Steelers are days away from opening a new season.

When the 26-year-old Bell didn’t report to the team and sign his $14.5 million one-year contract tender earlier this week, several of the team’s offensive linemen voiced their displeasure toward a player they normally do all they can to protect.

“Here’s a guy who doesn’t give a damn, so I guess we’ll treat it as such,” veteran guard Ramon Foster said. “I just hate it came to this.”

The Browns aren’t complaining.

Pittsburgh’s offense isn’t the same without Bell, one of the NFL’s best offensive players who ran for 1,291 yards last season despite missing training camp after reporting just a few days before the opener in Cleveland.

No Bell at all would seem to give the Browns an edge.

“He’s a talented player,” said defensive end Myles Garrett, who sat out last season’s first game with a serious ankle sprain. “He’s one of the best in the league at his position, so it definitely is an advantage to us. That’s up to him.”

Bell wasn’t himself in last year’s opener, rushing for just 32 yards on 10 carries and catching three passes for 15 yards. But because he’s Le’Veon Bell, the Browns had to account for him on every play.

“He’s a great player so he is always going to be a focal point,” linebacker Christian Kirksey said. “I just that we game-planned well. I that (defensive coordinator) Gregg (Williams) had a good game plan for us to attack their offense. I just that if it was him or any other running back, we were going to try to shut them down.”

Pittsburgh will turn to second-year back James Conner to replace Bell and start. Conner, who survived a cancer scare while in college, had just 32 carries as a rookie. But the Browns been watching a lot of video on him and have been impressed.

“They are different,” Jackson said, comparing Bell and Conner. “The other guy is a proven, top of the line, one of the top players in the league. Not that James Conner is not that, he just has not done it to the level that Le’Veon has.

“For their offense, he knows how to play in their system. He is a good football player. He will make plays for them. We have to do everything that we can to shut down the run game, whether it is Le’Veon or whether it is James Conner. Just have to do our job on defense the best hat we can.”

Of course, the Steelers still have future Hall of Fame quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and All-Pro receiver Antonio Brown to offset Bell’s loss.

And while the Browns won’t miss Bell, receiver Jarvis Landry did offer support for the back’s financial plea.

“Pay the man,” Landry said.

NOTES: Jackson will announce his starting tackle on Friday, but the Browns may have tipped their hand with a waiver claim. The team grabbed DL Anthony Zettel from the Lions and released backup center Aaron Neary. The move may signify that Austin Corbett, who has been starting at left guard, will now be the backup center with Joel Bitonio sliding back to guard and undrafted rookie Desmond Harrison starting at left tackle. … Zettel had 6½ sacks last season in Detroit.

The Los Angeles Chargers will replace defensive end Joey Bosa with second-year player Isaac Rochell, while the Kansas City Chiefs will be without one of their defensive stars in safety Eric Berry.

Bosa already had been listed as out for Sunday's season opener after reinjuring his foot Wednesday and wearing a walking boot Friday. Rochell was limited in three games last year. Berry had been doubtful with a sore heel, and he is being replaced by Eric Murray who is getting his third career start with the first two coming last season.

Rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson backed up veteran Joe Flacco in Baltimore with Robert Griffin III inactive for the Ravens' opener with the Buffalo Bills. Now the question is whether the 2016 Heisman Trophy winner gets on the field.

This is the first time Ravens coach John Harbaugh has kept three quarterbacks on his opening day roster since 2009, and the coach turned to Jackson with his running skills as a change-up option against Buffalo over Griffin with his 42 games of NFL experience.

For Buffalo, cornerback Vontae Davis is inactive after struggling through the preseason. But Davis was signed to be the starter, making him starting the season on the sideline a surprise.

Colts quarterback Andrew Luck made his first start in more than 20 months without either of his projected starting tackles or his starting running back. Joe Haeg Andre Branch Jersey , who started the most at right tackle for Indy last season, will start at left tackle for Anthony Castonzo (hamstring). Veteran J'Marcus Webb, signed during training camp, will start at right tackle in place of Denzelle Good (knee/wrist).

Rookie Jordan Wilkins, a fifth-round pick, replaces running back Marlon Mack in his NFL debut for Indianapolis.

Austin Corbett, the 33rd overall pick in this year's draft, is inactive for the Cleveland Browns against Pittsburgh after losing his job as left guard earlier this week. Corbett started all four preseason games, then Cleveland decided to move Joel Bitonio back to left guard and start undrafted rookie Desmond Harrison at left tackle.

In Miami, Brock Osweiler is the backup quarterback against the Titans with the Dolphins scratching a pair of quarterbacks, including rookie Luke Falk, who was claimed off waivers from Tennessee a week ago.

With Olivier Vernon out with an ankle injury, the Giants started rookie Lorenzo Carter out of Georgia at linebacker.

Josh LeRibeus is starting in place of New Orleans guard Andrus Peat, who missed a practice (quadriceps) and then was limited when he returned. Wide receiver Cameron Meredith, one of the Saints' top free agent signees, had hoped to play after missing the 2017 season with knee surgery. But Meredith is inactive. Tampa Bay cornerback Brent Grimes is out with a groin injury after being doubtful for the opener.
