Antonio Brown won’t play, opening door for Plaxico

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown returned to practice after missing two games with a sprained ankle this week.  But he won’t be returning to game action just yet.

Per a league source, Brown will not play on Sunday against the Browns.

Brown practiced all week on a limited basis, and he made the trip to Cleveland.  Coupled with the fact that receiver Jerricho Cotchery already has been scratched, the Steelers are down to four healthy receivers:  Mike Wallace, Emmanuel Sanders, Plaxico Burress, and David Gilreath.

For Burress, it’s his first game back with the Steelers since leaving the franchise as a free agent in 2005.  And he could make an immediate impact.
