Antonio Brown sits on Friday with toe injury

The Steelers made an addition to the injury report on Friday and it was a pretty big one

Wide receiver Antonio Brown did not participate in practice and was listed on the injury report with a toe injury. Brown was not on the injury report at all on Thursday.

The Steelers don’t play the Bengals until Monday night, so they’ll have another practice on Saturday before issuing injury designations for the game. Brown has missed one regular season game and one postseason game since the start of the 2013 season.

If the Steelers do have to go without Brown, they should have JuJu Smith-Schuster back at wideout after he missed last Sunday because of a hamstring injury. Smith-Schuster’s rookie season has unfolded well, but the hope in Pittsburgh will certainly be that Brown is able to build on his league lead in receptions and receiving yards.

  1. Oh dear. That last meeting in Steel town looked good on paper 29-14 to Pitt, but the game changed on a couple of passes from Dalton being tipped up and falling as INTs. And then a fake punt by Pitt late on helped keep the score looking that good. Don’t expect that luck continue for the return match. Dalton got sacked a lot later on too, but several starting Pitt defenders are banged-up and likely to miss this game – I expect it to be a close one.

    Cute little spin from someone clueless about the Steeers……and a Pat’s Troll. Adds up to BS.

  3. You don’t have to be a Steelers fan to acknowledge AB is the best receiver in the game right now and the game is always better when it’s best players take the field. Hopefully it’s just a precautionary ‘ice up son’ kind of thing and not serious.

  4. Oh dear, I sure hope the Steelers don’t play down
    to the weak competition this week. It’s such a lowly place
    where the Bengals now reside.

    If at all possible, Antonio will play. He is one tough competitor.

  5. AB is too good to say his absence doesnt hurt the Steelers. But they should still be able to beat the Bengals without him. They should rest him during the easier games so that he is sure to be back for the Patriors where they need him. Thats the game where Pittsburgh will need everything they got if they are to stand a chance.
