“AB! My apologies my brother,” Jones said in a video posted to Instagram. “I’m a man of my word. I’ve been doing a little traveling, sorry this took me so long. But I apologize, sincerely. Get well.”

Brown was hit hard by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict late in Pittsburgh’s wild-card round win over Cincinnati, and laid on the ground for several minutes. As he was attended to, assistant coach Joey Porter stepped on the field and got into a verbal confrontation with Jones, who then yelled and pointed at Porter. Jones was assessed a personal foul penalty, and afterwards, he said Brown winked at him as he left the field, indicating that he was fine.
The Steelers and Broncos are set to kick off at 4:40 p.m. ET on Sunday.
