Antonio Brown Expected To Play For Steelers

I have a very hard time believe that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown won't play in the Divisional Round Playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

Brown missed Friday's practice with an illness, but he practiced in full the rest of the week, and coach Mike Tomlin said that he's "looked really good".

"I didn't want him to get any of the guys that weren't sick sick. We do need to get him well from an illness standpoint".

Brown suffered the calf injury early in the December 17 loss to New England and missed the two subsequent games.

Brown was a limited participant during the final practice of the week.

Brown, who led the National Football League in receptions despite having his regular season cut short by the injury, returned to practice Monday and was a full participant this week until Friday. In the first meeting this season back in Week 5, he had much success posting 10 catches on 19 targets for 157 receiving yards.

Linebackers Paul Posluszny and Telvin Smith and cornerback Aaron Colvin also missed a day of practice this week, but all are expected to be in the lineup when the Jaguars take the field in Pittsburgh on Sunday.
