Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will likely miss Sunday’s divisional round game against the Denver Broncos due to a concussion, reports ESPN’s Bob Holtzman.

Brown sustained the head injury on a hit by Bengals linebacker Vontaze Burfict in Pittsburgh's 18–16 win in Saturday's AFC wild-card matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. Burfict was flagged, helping set up a game-winning field goal by Steelers kicker Chris Boswell.

Burfict came in high as Brown was trying to make a catch across the middle, hitting the receiver’s helmet with his shoulder pad. Brown was forced to leave the game after the hit and was later diagnosed with a concussion.
