The infirmary: NFL divisional playoff injury report

The Steelers have the most significant injuries heading into the divisional round of the playoffs, declaring two important starters out.

The Pittsburgh Steelers will be without arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL this weekend, as Antonio Brown was declared out after suffering a concussion on Vontaze Burfict’s vicious hit to the head in the wild card round of the playoffs. The Steelers also declared RB DeAngelo Williams out with a foot injury.

QB Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder) is also questionable after a clean Burfict sack last weekend.

The Kansas City Chiefs have numerous important players listed as questionable as they prepare to play the New England Patriots. LB Tamba Hali (knee, thumb), LB Justin Houston (knee), WR Jeremy Maclin (ankle), RB Spencer Ware (ankle) and WR Albert Wilson (hamstring) are all questionable for the Chiefs.

The Patriots also have numerous players listed as questionable (see below), the biggest among them WR Danny Amendola (knee) and TE Rob Gronkowski (knee, back).

The Green Bay Packers listed CBs Sam Shields (concussion) and Quinten Rollins (quadricep) as questionable and ruled out WR Davante Adams and TE Andrew Quarless, both with knee injuries.

For the Carolina Panthers, WR Ted Ginn Jr. (knee) is questionable.

The Denver Broncos already declared Peyton Manning their starting quarterback for this game, but backup Brock Osweiler (knee) is questionable.
