Jim O'Connor-US PRESSWIRE
As expected, Antonio Brown and Marcus Gilbert join Troy Polamalu and Stevenson Sylvester ruled out for Monday's game against Kansas City.
Brown will miss his first game due to injury as a professional, unable to overcome a high ankle sprain suffered in Pittsburgh's 24-20 win over New York in Week 9.
Chris Rainey (rib) will play, and according to Bires, will return kicks as he has been. Emmanuel Sanders will return punts in Brown's absence.
The particular absences in this game really don't change much, if anything, for the Steelers. They will likely center their game plan around the running game - with the only real question being who will get more carries, Isaac Redman or Jonathan Dwyer?
