Report: Ben Roethlisberger the player who angered Antonio Brown

The Steelers and Antonio Brown appear to be at an impasse and Mike Florio and Chris Simms try to figure out how it got to this point and what can be done moving forward.

The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reported Monday that Antonio Brown’s dispute with a teammate led him to walk out last week. We now know the name of that player: Ben Roethlisberger.

Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reports that it was the Steelers quarterback who had a football thrown at his feet by an angry Brown. The disagreement between Roethlisberger and Brown occurred at a Wednesday walk-through.

Brown did not practice last week, with the Steelers listing him as a “coach’s decision” Wednesday and with a knee injury on Thursday and Friday.

The Pro Bowl receiver did not play in the game for disciplinary reasons not an injury concern, according to the Post-Gazette.
