NFL Injury Report:
You probably already expected Antonio Brown to be out on Monday against the Kansas City Chiefs. However, it turns out Brown will likely miss more than this week's game. It seems as if the Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receiver will miss a few games.
According to Mike Florio of NBC's Pro Football Talk, Brown is expected to miss a few games due to his ankle injury. This comes, says Florio, from a source close to the injury and with knowledge of the situation. Brown's injury is characterized as a high ankle sprain.
Brown was injured in Sunday's game against the New York Giants. The Steelers won the game, but Brown's injury could turn out to be a big loss. The Steelers should not have trouble with Kansas City on Monday, but they will face the Baltimore Raven in two of their next three games after that.
Brown is not going to catch a lot of touchdowns, but his role on the field is important. In this, his third NFL season, Brown has caught 42 passed for 499 yards. He has one touchdown this season. His catches, when he is thrown to tend to be longer. He is averaging 11.9 yards per reception this season, but has averaged 14 yard per reception in his career.
The Steelers are currently in playoff position, but they will have to maintain this in the challenging AFC. Their 5-3 record puts them one game behind the Baltimore Ravens for first place in the AFC North.
