Antonio Brown expected to be game-time decision

Antonio Brown expected to be game-time decision

I have a very hard time believe that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown won't play in the Divisional Round Playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

But a Jaguars injury may have just as much to do with Steelers' success as Antonio Brown's ability to play at a high level.

"I didn't want him to get any of the guys that weren't sick sick", Tomlin said on Friday.

Brown missed Friday's practice with an illness, but he practiced in full the rest of the week, and coach Mike Tomlin said that he's "looked really good". "We'll bring him back in the building (Saturday) and continue with his game readiness".

Brown returned to practice on Monday after suffering a calf injury against the New England Patriots in Week 15.

The Steelers won their final two games without Brown in the lineup.

Cornerback Aaron Colvin (illness), linebacker Telvin Smith (ankle) and linebacker Paul Posluszny (abdomen), who all sat out Wednesday, were limited at Thursday's practice.

Pro Football Talk is wrong and Brown's calf is fine.

Brown finished the 2017 season with an NFL-best 1,533 receiving yards.
