Report: “Not looking good” for Antonio Brown this week

Maybe Antonio Brown does deserve a Grammy.

Because even though Bengals cornerback Pacman Jones accused him of faking a head injury, there are now reports that injury is sufficient to possibly keep him out of the next game.

According to ESPN’s Bob Holtzman, it is “not looking good,” that Brown will be available for Sunday’s divisional round game against the Broncos.

The same report has it more likely that quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be able to return from his shoulder injury.

The Steelers haven’t made any comment on either player, though there was a more optimistic report on Brown earlier in the week.

Of course, trying to handicap the timeline of the concussion protocol is a waste of time for non-neurologists, as Brown will have to be cleared by someone without a whistle around their neck or a notebook in their back pocket.
