Mike Tomlin expects Antonio Brown to play vs. Jacksonville Jaguars


The Steelers listed Brown as questionable in their Friday status report.

Antonio Brown still sounds poised to play on Sunday for the Pittsburgh Steelers, but it doesn't sound like his calf is out of the woods.

According to Aditi Kinkhabwala of the NFL Network, Brown was present for the Steelers Saturday morning walkthrough.

I have a very hard time believe that Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown won't play in the Divisional Round Playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday.

"I didn't want him to get any of the guys that weren't sick sick".

Brown returned to practice on Monday after suffering a calf injury against the New England Patriots in Week 15.

Those were the lone regular-season games Brown has missed over the past five years, though he did sit out a divisional-round playoff game after the 2015 season because of a concussion.

Tomin seemed to dispel that possibility Friday, especially when he added Brown "looked really good" physically during practice this week.

He was a full participant in practices Wednesday and Thursday before not practicing Friday after being sent home with an illness.
