Antonio Brown has non-high ankle sprain, could be back next week

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown threw reporters a curve ball after Sunday’s win over the Giants, saying that he has a high ankle sprain but that he’ll play next Monday night against the Chiefs.

Per a league source, it’s not a high ankle sprain.  And it’s not regarded as severe.

So Brown could play next week against the one-win Chiefs at Heinz Field.  The question becomes whether the Steelers will risk aggravation of the injury against the, you know, one-win Chiefs.

    So is a non-high ankle sprain the same as a low ankle sprain?

    it’s not a high ankle sprain, but does he have high ankle sprain-like symptoms?

    Let him sit against the Chiefs . . . Jericho Cotchery will step in, just like he did today. Next Man Up!

    Time to get it on! Now, here they come. The Steelers are title contenders once again.

    Could he mean the location of the sprain? In that regard a “high” sprain higher on the ankle is better because most of the tendons and the main joint is located lower in the ankle near the foot.

    The Steelers need him. Just like the Steelers needed Harrison and Troy P against the “weak” Raiders. All hands on deck are needed to win against any NFL team.

    “The question becomes whether the Steelers will risk aggravation of the injury against the, you know, one-win Chiefs.”

    it’s exactly this kind of attitude that gets us beat against teams like this. it starts to infect the players’ minds, and before you know it, we’re playing down to our opponent and in a dogfight. if he’s healthy, play him. if he’s not, dont. it’s kinda that simple. shouldnt have anything to do with the opponent.

    “it’s exactly this kind of attitude that gets us beat against teams like this.”

    I’m more worried about getting beat by teams like the Ravens and Browns. Division games are more important. Rest him this week.
