Chiefs vs. Steelers: Antonio Brown unlikely to play

Matt Sullivan

Antonio Brown is likely to miss Monday's game against the Kansas City Chiefs because of injury.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown is unlikely to play in the team's Week 10 matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night, according to head coach Mike Tomlin.

Tomlin stated on Monday that Brown had sustained a mild high ankle sprain during the team's 24-20 victory over the New York Giants in Week 9. Brown appeared to sustain the injury when his feet became tangled with a Giants defender while attempting to receive a deep pass in the first half.

At first, there was some hope that he could return to the game, but his status was downgraded to 'questionable' after the half and he ultimately did not return. Offseason free agent acquisition Jerricho Cotchery filled in for Brown for the rest of the game.

While Tomlin stated that Brown was unlikely to play, the coach left the door open to a potential return if the 24-year-old shows progress through the week.
