Steelers WR Antonio Brown unlikely to play against Broncos

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.

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.
