Steelers WR Antonio Brown 'in doubt' for Week 10
Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed on Tuesday what was pretty much suspected of wide receiver Antonio Brown : He doesn't have a great chance of playing Monday night against the Chiefs because of his "mild" high ankle sprain. Tomlin's words were that Brown's status is "in doubt." He didn't play much more than a quarter of a Sunday's win over the Giants because of the injury.
There is no reason for the Steelers to push Brown back onto the field, especially given the nature of his injury and the upcoming opponent. The Steelers could probably defeat the Chiefs by double digits without Brown and any of their running backs. I expect Brown to be out for a couple of games at least and as a result, Emmanuel Sanders and Jerricho Cotchery will pick up more snaps and targets.
