Antonio Brown showing progress in return from calf injury

The good news for Mike Tomlin is that the Steelers don’t have to play this week, so he doesn’t have to file an injury report.

But if he did, he said wide receiver Antonio Brown would be questionable.

Via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Tomlin said his star wideout was making good progress in his rehab from a calf injury.

That’s a good sign as the Steelers take the week off in preparation for the divisional round.

Brown suffered a partially torn calf muscle two weeks ago against the Patriots, and didn’t play last week (though the Steelers wouldn’t have played him if he were well). He still caught 101 passes this season, the first receiver go catch more than 100 for five straight seasons.

  1. Why say anything that’s not required? In what way does revealing this information help his team?

  2. “the first receiver go catch more than 100 for five straight seasons.”

    Wes Welker also had 5 x 100+ catch seasons but there was one in the middle of the run where he had a crappy 86 catch season. Welker was however the first receiver to have 5 x 100 catch seasons, Brown is the first to put 5 in a row and if he gets one more with or without a lesser season he will have outdone Welker.

    Dude can’t even walk properly let alone run and make cuts. The usual Bouchette fluff piece – be surprised to see AB before next season.
    ————–
    you should follow him on Instagram considering he has been posting videos of himself running on a treadmill. He will be back for the divisional round, like the team has everyone else has been reporting.

  4. well, welker was a ‘six yard route for two-yard tommie’ and turnaround’ YAC receiver, AB is a true receiver, stretching the field…not a dink n dunk munchkin

  5. “the first receiver go catch more than 100 for five straight seasons.”

    Once again a Patriot troll has to try to change a record so it benefits a Patriot player. Brown is the first…..period. And you get mad when an asterisk is added to the Cheaters Lombardi’s…..hypocrite.

  6. @harrisonhits2, Brown has already outdone Welker by stringing together 5 consecutive 100+ catch seasons. 5 straight outweighs 5 out of 6. Period.

  7. There is so much drama on this team. Brown is like Big Ben, they aren’t happy unless they are complaining about something.

    I fail to see a complain in this article

    Not sure where in this article you read that someone was complaining. They were giving an update on Brown’s injury.

    As far as I’m concerned bubba, a reception is a reception. Show me the stats for these dink and dunk receptions you speak of. Oh wait, there aren’t any??? That’s CRAZY!

    RE: that last Steelers-Pats game – If not for that overturned TD call and that fluke pick at the end, the Steelers had that game won. NE can be beat.

    Comparing AB to Welker is like comparing Joe Montana to Trent Dilfer. AB is HOF lock – Welker will coach HS football somewhere & people will say “Wes who” when he introduces himself.
