Steelers WR Antonio Brown won't play vs. Browns
Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will not play today versus the Browns. Although he practiced in limited fashion all week and said he would be active for this game, Brown isn't quite over his high ankle sprain. He will miss his third consecutive game, and Emmanuel Sanders will start in his place once again.
Even if Brown was up and running in Cleveland, he shouldn't have been in your starting lineup, especially with Charlie Batch under center. I'm skeptical about all aspects of the Steelers' passing game today. Pro Football Talk guesses that this could mean Plaxico Burress, playing in his first game of the season, will make an "immediate impact." Yeah, no. He's another guy who shouldn't be near your lineup. Brown should be able to suit up in Week 13, which is kind of what was expected all along.
