The Pittsburgh Steelers Have Ruled Out Antonio Brown

The Steelers have ruled out Antonio Brown for this weekend's Divisional Round bout with the Broncos.

Adam Jones is going to have to eat some crow and apologize to Antonio Brown. Jones stated after the Steelers defeated the Bengals in the Wildcard Round that Brown was "faking" his injury and that he'd apologize to Brown if he indeed missed the next game. 

The Steelers have ruled out Antonio Brown for this weekend's big Divisional Round playoff game vs. the Denver Broncos. Brown suffered a concussion when Bengals LB Vontaze Burfict collided into his head on the Steelers' final game-winning drive.

Brown has since been in the National Football League's mandated concussion protocol. It hasn't looked good for him all week and it's unfortunate that he'll be unable to suit up this Sunday.

Brown's absence adds insult to injury for the Steelers, considering that Ben Roethlisberger has a 50-50 chance at playing and DeAngelo Williams is doubful to suit up. 

It just goes to show how physically taxing that Wildcard game was for the Steelers.
