ESPN's Adam Schefter reports Antonio Brown (calf) is "not close" to 100 percent ahead of Sunday's Divisional Round game against Jacksonville.

Per Schefter, Brown will test his previously-torn calf in pre-game warmups, at which point the Steelers will decide whether Brown is healthy enough to play. "My guess is he will be active and give it a go," a source told Schefter. It sounds like even if Brown is dressed and plays, he will be limited and/or used as a decoy. The Steelers were already going to have to count heavily on Le'Veon Bell, but JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant will likely have to play bigger roles.

James Conner rushed 15 times for 61 yards and added five catches for 34 yards in the Steelers' Week 3 win over the Bucs.

The Steelers had a chance to establish Conner even further with a 30-10 lead heading into the third quarter, but were ultimately forced to try and match the Bucs' second-half onslaught and stick to passing against Tampa Bay's funnel defense. Conner was still involved out of the backfield, hauling in 5-of-6 targets on the day. With no real threat behind him, Conner remains a usage-based RB1 no matter the matchup.

JuJu Smith-Schuster caught 9-of-11 targets for 116 yards in the Steelers' Week 3 win over the Buccaneers.

It was just another 100-plus yard evening for Smith-Schuster, who's up to 27-356-1 on 38 targets this season. He also helped notched the game on the Steelers' final drive, separating from his defender and getting loose over the middle to bring down Ben Roethlisberger's across-the-body heave and secure Pittsburgh's 30-27 win. JuJu has now scored a touchdown and/or eclipsed the 100-yard mark in seven consecutive games. He's an every-week matchup-proof WR2.

Vance McDonald caught 4-of-5 targets for 112 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 3 victory over the Buccaneers.

McDonald ran more routes than teammate Jesse James in Week 2, but it was the latter who still finished with better receiving numbers (5-138-1). That wasn't the case Monday night as Ben Roethlisberger hit McDonald in-stride during the team's third possession and watched him bulldoze (literally) his way through Bucs S Chris Conte and scamper down the sideline for a 75-yard score. Although James is technically considered Pittsburgh's blocking tight end, McDonald quietly graded better than James in run-blocking (per PFF) just last year. McDonald was talked about highly throughout offseason activities and training camp and, barring health, could easily emerge as an every-down tight end.

Antonio Brown hauled in 6-of-9 targets for 50 yards and one touchdown in the Steelers' Week 3 win over the Buccaneers.

Backed by a strong "squeaky wheel" narrative, Brown underwhelmed (by his standards) with merely six catches for 50 yards Monday night. Ben Roethlisberger hit him for a 27-yard touchdown prior to the half, which ultimately salvaged his day. Brown should still be considered fantasy's overall WR1, but the emergence of receiving TE Vance McDonald (4-112-1 Monday night) and JuJu Smith-Schuster's constant peppering of targets (11 against the Bucs) are both slightly concerning. Brown still ranks second in the league with 42 targets and is eventually bound to explode, perhaps even as soon as Week 4 when the Steelers host an injury-riddled Ravens defense.

Ben Roethlisberger completed 30-of-38 passes for 353 yards, three touchdowns, and one interception in the Steelers' Week 3 victory over the Buccaneers.

Roethlisberger and the Steelers' offense shook off a quick three-and-out and interception during their first two possessions to eventually take a 30-10 lead into the half. Big Ben's first touchdown was a YAC-filled 75-yard touchdown pass over the middle to emerging starter Vance McDonald, followed by touchdowns to Antonio Brown and Ryan Switzer before heading to the locker room. Pittsburgh was shutout in the second half, but Roethlisberger did enough damage early on to finish as the week's QB10. The Steelers have a divisional showdown next Sunday night against a Ravens defense that could be without both CB Jimmy Smith and LB C.J. Mosley.
Sep 24 - 11:57 PM

Ryan Fitzpatrick completed 30-of-50 passes for 411 yards, three touchdowns, and three interceptions in the Bucs' Week 3 loss to the Steelers.

Fitzpatrick became the first quarterback in league history to pass for 400 yards in three consecutive games. The night started slow for Fitzmagic and the Bucs' offense, who went into the half trailing 30-10. Tampa Bay rallied and scored the final 17 points of the evening, though, falling just one Ben Roethlisberger scramble-and-heave to JuJu Smith-Schuster away from getting the ball back and potentially pulling off the comeback win. Fitzpatrick has been absurd through three games, totaling 1,230 passing yards, 11 touchdowns, and four picks. With Jameis Winston set to return, only time will tell whether the record book's newest member will have a starting gig in Week 4.

ABC 5 reports Vikings DE Everson Griffen threatened to shoot someone at a Minneapolis hotel on Saturday.

The Vikings released a cryptic statement about an incident involving Griffen, and it appears as if this is what they were referencing. According to police reports, a person at Hotel Ivy was threatening to shoot someone during the day on Saturday. KSTP reports the person doing the threatening was Griffen. Police did not find a gun when they reported to the scene, and no one was arrested. Even so, this incident could land him in hot water with the league if it is true. Griffen was inactive on Sunday because of a knee injury.

Rams coach Sean McVay said Aqib Talib (ankle) will probably need surgery.

Talib is getting a second opinion before undergoing surgery. The Rams are hopeful he'll still be able to return this season. The good news is that Marcus Peters (calf) could play as soon as Thursday against the Vikings. Assuming Talib misses at least 4-6 weeks, the Rams will be forced to lean on the lot of Sam Shields, Nickell Robey-Coleman and Troy Hill across from Peters.

Steelers declared RG David DeCastro, RT Marcus Gilbert, QB Mason Rudolph, WR Justin Hunter, S Marcus Allen, S Morgan Burnett, and DE L.T. Walton inactive for Week 3 against the Bucs.

B.J. Finney and Matt Feiler will fill in on the right side of Pittsburgh's offensive line. With Hunter inactive for the second consecutive week, rookie WR James Washington is again expected to play an integral role behind Antonio Brown and Juju Smith-Schuster. CB Coty Sensabaugh will also reportedly start over Artie Burns Monday for performance-based reasons.
Sep 24 - 6:58 PM

Bucs declared rookie RB Ronald Jones, DT Vita Vea, DT Beau Allen, CB Marcus Williams, OL Alex Cappa, OL Mike Liedtke, and WR Justin Watson inactive for Week 3 against the Steelers.

Although Peyton Barber has struggled in efficiency, second-round RB Jones failed to crack the Bucs' active list for the third consecutive game. Tampa Bay will roll with Jacquizz Rodgers and Shaun Wilson behind Barber. First-round DT Vea was limited in practice throughout the week and out Monday but is reportedly close to returning to help shore up the Bucs' trenches. Starting CB Brent Grimes (groin) is active for Monday night.
