Antonio Brown injury 'worse than believed,' according to report

Antonio Brown will not only miss Monday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receiver could be out for several weeks with a still-undisclosed injury.

The injury was initially reported as a high ankle sprain that likely wouldn't keep him out for any playing time, but Mike Florio from Pro Football Talk's source disagreed on both fronts. Florio reported that the injury wasn't a high ankle sprain, although it is an ankle injury and that the problem is "worse than believed" and could keep the receiver out for an uncertain amount of time.

Brown leads the team in receptions with 42 and is just off of the team lead in yards, with 499 -- Mike Wallace has 525. The third-year player out of Central Michigan will be replaced by Emmanuel Sanders as the starter at Brown's wide receiver spot. There's currently no time frame for Brown's return.
