Report: Antonio Brown to Miss Next Two Weeks With Sprained Ankle

Buccaneers coach Bruce Arians told reporters Wednesday that Antonio Brown is doubtful for Sunday's game against the Falcons. Later in the day, it was reported that Brown is expected to miss the next two weeks of action with the same sprained ankle he injured in Week 6, per ESPN's Adam Schefter

In that Week 6 matchup with the Eagles, he tallied six catches for 93 yards with a touchdown. The six-time Pro Bowler has recorded 29 receptions for 418 yards and four touchdowns in five games this season.

ESPN previously reported that doctors expected it would be a six-week injury. Last Sunday marked the fifth game and sixth week he's been ruled out.
