ESPN's Adam Schefter reported Brown has a partially torn calf muscle and will likely not play next week, but he should be good for the postseason.
Brown was trying to grab a pass from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger threw to the endzone in the second quarter. He had help walking off the field and left to the chants of MVP.

Before leaving, Brown had two catches for 24 yards.
Brown leads the league in receiving yards with 1509 yards and nine touchdowns on 99 receptions.
