Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown didn’t appear to have any problems with his toe on Monday night against the Cincinnati Bengals.
He appeared on the injury report the Friday before the game against the Bengals, and his status wasn’t decided until Monday. Brown hauled in 8 receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown.
On Friday, Brown was a full participant in practice after having to sit out on Thursday. He is not a fan of missing practice.
“I never want to play a game without practicing,” Brown said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette’s Ray Fittipaldo. “That’s not ideal for me. I’m a guy who wants to be out there and take every rep to get a great feel and preparation. But last week was less fortunate for me. It was a challenge. I was grateful I was able to pull through, but I’m grateful for this week and excited about this opportunity to be out there with my guys.
“The arrow’s pointed up. I’m feeling a lot better.”
At this point of the season, Brown will have to miss practice when he’s banged up. His healthy presence on game day is crucial to the Steelers’ hopes of winning a Super Bowl. Through 12 games he has 88 receptions for 1,296 yards and 9 touchdowns.
