Steelers WR Antonio Brown could play in 2 weeks

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown @AntonioBrown84 won't play this Sunday night against the Ravens, but has been told by a source that Brown is aiming to return in time for the Steelers' next game against their AFC North rival -- Dec. 2 in Baltimore. Brown has been trying to heal a high ankle sprain that he suffered back in Week 9 against the Giants.

Fantasy Analysis:

If Brown returns in Week 13, he will have had four weeks off between games, which is a typical timetable for a high ankle sprain. At least his fantasy owners can now plan ahead for next week knowing that Brown won't be of any use. It's been quite a bummer of the season for the Central Michigan product -- no 100-yard receiving games and only one touchdown. With Byron Leftwich under center for at least the next month, don't expect Brown's numbers to spike once he comes back. Emmanuel Sanders @E_Sanders88 will continue to start for as long as Brown is absent.
