The parade of missing players for Sunday night’s Ravens-Steelers game in Pittsburgh could have one less float when the AFC North rivalry returns to Baltimore in two weeks.
Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, the team’s MVP in 2011, could be back from a sprained ankle in two weeks, per a source with knowledge of the situation.
Brown sprained the ankle two weeks ago in a game against the Giants. It wasn’t expected to be serious at the time, but he has missed two games, and he likely will miss next Sunday’s game at Cleveland.
In addition to Brown, the latest installment of one of the best sports rivalries will be played without Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger or Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. Missing for the Ravens are linebacker Ray Lewis, cornerback Lardardius Webb, and cornerback Jimmy Smith.
