Steelers receiver Antonio Brown typically shows up big in prime time. For his team’s next prime time game, there’s a chance he won’t be showing up, at all.
Brown is questionable for Monday night’s game against the Bengals with a toe injury. He didn’t practice on Friday or on Saturday.
The good news for the Steelers is that receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster has exited the injury report after missing a couple of games due to hamstring injury. If Brown can’t go, Smith-Schuster, Martavis Bryant, and Eli Rogers will likely get the bulk of the attention in the passing game, with running back Le'Veon Bell undoubtedly counted upon to carry a heavy load, both running and receiving.
Linebacker Ryan Shazier also has exited the injury report after missing practice on Thursday and Friday with an ankle injury.
