A report surfacing Sunday suggests Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will miss more than just Monday Night's Week 10 game against the Chiefs.
Now, a report coming from Pro Football Talk suggests he may be out longer than that.
PFT cites a source who is saying Brown's injury is "worse than believed," and could be something that keeps him out of multiple games. The source didn't list a timeframe, but PFT points out the Steelers play Baltimore in Week 11, Cleveland in Week 12 and Baltimore again in Week 13.
It could also be around a time the wife of Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger delivers their first child. That could lead to both players being out of a combination of three critical divisional games. The Steelers are 1-0 in the division, trailing Baltimore by a game. The Ravens are 3-0 in the division (with wins over Cincinnati and two against Cleveland).
Brown was initially diagnosed with a high ankle sprain - an injury that often takes more than one week from which to recover, especially for wide receivers.
