There were plenty of questions surrounding the Pittsburgh Steelers’ injury report after Thursday’s practice, and almost all of those questions were answered with good news on Friday’s final injury report, except for one name on the list.
It wasn’t Stephon Tuitt, who returned to practice after missing a workout with an elbow injury. It wasn’t Javon Hargrave, who returned to practice after missing a workout with a back injury. And it wasn’t Artie Burns, who returned to practice after missing a workout with a knee injury.
It was Antonio Brown.
As news broke on social media, most assumed it was a setback from his calf injury. But according to Mike Tomlin, Brown was sent home with an illness. Tomlin said he felt confident Brown would be ready to play on Sunday when the Jaguars come to Heinz Field.
On the official injury report Brown is listed as “Questionable” with both an illness and a calf injury. He was the only player listed for Pittsburgh. Jacksonville is also a healthy team, considering they have only two players listed “Questionable” leading up to kickoff.
