    Any update on Antonio Brown's ankle injury...

    Didnt get a chance to hear Tomlin after the game give the injury report but was just wondering on what Brown's status was on his ankle. Hopefully he is going to be okay and it is nothing too serious. Regardless, of how bad the injury is I am not playing Brown next week against the Chiefs and risking him getting hurt any further in a game where you by far do not need him at all to win. The Steelers while you never want to overlook anybody have got to be thinking and looking ahead to that Ravens game 2 weeks from tonight. You rest Brown next week against KC and give him a full 2 weeks of treatment so he is pretty close too if not 100 percent ready to go for the Ravens game in 2 weeks. If there is any doubt about him not being 100 percent for next week you most definitely no questions asked sit him down against the Chiefs and there is no way that you risk playing him and getting him hurt. Get him healthy for that Ravens game period no questions asked....

    All Tomlin said was that Brown had a mild high ankle sprain, and that he would be evaluated tomorrow and this week. You just wonder how much more this team can take with injuries; somehow they keep coming back but sooner or later it's going to be something that will bite them Im afraid.

    Even if it isn't too serious, sit him next week in hopes that he'll be healthy for the Ravens. Wallace and Sanders should be able to take care of business against KC.

    Cotchery had some major clutch receptions tonight. You could start him if necessary for awhile. Those high ankle sprains are nothing to mess around with.

    Brown isnt going to play next week against Kansas City there is no way Tomlin and the medical staff will risk him getting hurt any further with the Ravens coming up the following week as pathetic as the Chiefs are. He will sit there is no way he plays mark that one down for certain...

    The upside is that even with arguably our best receiver out, we're still not thin at WR.

    I'm sure AB will lobby to play next week but there's no way I risk further injuring a high ankle sprain. Cotchery is more than capable of carrying the load on offense for awhile, plus Sanders and Wallace along with Heath give Ben more than enough targets. Let him sit and for that matter might as well let Mendenhall sit again too. Troy certainly won't play either.
