Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is unlikely to play this weekend when Pittsburgh takes on the Broncos in their AFC Divisional Round match up. Brown suffered a concussion on a late hit to the head by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict during the AFC Wild Card Game.
Ben Roethlisberger, who suffered a separated shoulder in that same game, is very likely to play.
"Not looking good" for WR Antonio Brown to play Sunday vs. Denver due to his concussion, per @BobHoltzmanESPN. "Very likely" Ben plays.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) January 12, 2016
The Steelers will already be without the services of running back DeAngelo Williams, so having Brown out is even more of a monumental loss than it normally would be. With Brown and Williams out and Roethlisberger banged up, Pittsburgh figures to have a hell of a time against a rested Broncos squad.
The two teams met in Pittsburgh on Dec. 20, a 34-27 Steelers victory.
