This doesn’t come as a big surprise. Brown didn’t participate in practice yesterday, and as I mentioned, he would need to show the team physician and a neurological consultant that he can participate in “football activity” without a setback. These tests are typically a day or two apart.
With Brown ruled out, the important question now becomes- will Pacman Jones issue that apology he promised? Just kidding. Of course he won’t. He’ll likely say that the conspiracy is so deep that the Steelers held Brown out to cover up his fake injury.
The important question becomes how will the Steelers find a way to replace AB’s production? Heath Miller, Markus Wheaton, Martavis Bryant, Darrius Heyward-Bey, the TnT backfield and perhaps even Jesse James and Sammie Coates will all need to be sharp when they face the league’s number 1 passing defense.
