Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones: Antonio Brown was not hurt, he was faking
Monday January 11th, 2016

Bengals defensive back Adam ‘Pacman’ Jones tells the Dan Patrick Show that Steelers receiver Antonio Brown was not injured after a late hit by Vontaze Burfict on Brown set up a game-winning field goal by Steelers kicker Chris Boswell.

“Man, Antonio Brown was not hurt,” Jones said. “I know he was faking it. Go back and look at the play. You go back and look at the play and you tell me if Vontaze hit him in the head, or did his shoulder pad barely touch him?”

Jones also added the Brown winked at the Bengals after the play.

“If you just got knocked out, you’re not going to be able to wink.”

Brown went into the concussion protocol but is expected to be fine and could return to action for the next round of the playoffs.

KING: ‘An Absolute Aorta-Smasher’

As Brown was being assisted by team doctors, Jones got into a scuffle with Steelers linebacker coach Joey Porter. He went on a profane Instagram rant to criticize the officials in the game, and addressed the issue again on Monday.

The Bengals lost 18–16 to the Steelers, who will play the Denver Broncos next weekend.
