The NFL world has been obsessed with the Pittsburgh Steelers, and why not. The team is a hot-bed for news and drama, the most recent being Antonio Brown’s missed meeting on Monday.
The last fans heard of this situation was when Mike Tomlin addressed the media at his weekly press conference on Tuesday. There he stated he hadn’t spoken with Brown, but said it was on his to-do list.
After the team’s first official practice leading up to the Monday Night Football game vs. the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 3, Tomlin spoke to media briefly and said he didn’t just meet with Brown, but disciplined him.
Check out what Tomlin said below:
The Steelers’ head coach didn’t say what the punishment was, or if it would impact Brown’s playing time Monday, but deferred those questions to Brown who will meet with media Thursday, a day before his normally scheduled media session.
For those thinking Brown might be suspended for a game, his teammates didn’t see it that way since he was at practice and was being injected into the game plan. There is a chance he sits to start the game, but the Steelers will need all hands on deck to try and win their first game of the season against the red-hot Buccaneers and Ryan Fitzpatrick.
