Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has already been ruled out for the Steelers' Monday night’s game against the Kansas City Chiefs because of an ankle injury, but he might miss a few more games, according to ProFootballTalk.com.
After Sunday’s win over the Giants, Brown said he has a high ankle sprain, but that he’ll be fine. (Rarely is any player with a high ankle sprain ever “fine.”) We later reported that it’s not a high ankle sprain, and that in the hours after the game it wasn’t regarded as severe.
Brown has 42 receptions for 499 yards and a touchdown in eight games this season. Emmanuel Sanders will start in the place of Brown.
