The Pittsburgh Steelers WR has left the game for the moment with an apparent leg injury.

NFL: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers Charles LeClaire-USA TODAY Sports

The Pittsburgh Steelers are currently leading the New England Patriots 10-7 in the second quarter, but the team has taken a bit hit as superstar wide receiver Antonio Brown has left the game with an apparent ankle injury.

As Ben Roethlisberger threw a pass to Brown in the endzone, Brown’s ankle looked to collide with a Patriots’ defender, and the receiver remained on the ground following the play. He was helped off the field, and into the blue medical tent.

From there, he went into the locker room, likely to have an X-Ray done.

Stay tuned for more information on this injury as more news is released.

UPDATE:

Brown’s injury is listed as a “calf” injury, and his return is questionable.

UPDATE:

Brown has been taken to a local hospital for further evaluation and has been ruled out of the game.
