Report: Antonio Brown will be game-time decision on Sunday
The Pittsburgh Steelers have been publicly bullish on wide receiver Antonio Brown’s status for Sunday, but there are reportedly some real concerns about whether he will go.
According to Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk, Brown will be a game-time decision on Sunday, with his calf still a lingering concern.
Per source, Steelers WR Antonio Brown is currently expected to be a game-time decision. Calf injury is still an issue.

This goes against the public statements from the Steelers, who have been clear about their expectation that Brown will play. He didn’t practice Friday, citing illness, but there appear to be concerns that aren’t being stated in public. All eyes will be on Brown ahead of Sunday’s game — and, if he plays, how much of a threat he poses.
