Antonio Brown caught 7-of-11 targets for 132 yards and two touchdowns in the Steelers' Divisional Round loss to the Jaguars.
Although he lacked his usual explosiveness playing through a calf injury, Brown put on a highlight-reel performance with superb route running and sticky hands. He scored the Steelers’ first points of the game on a 23-yard basket catch against A.J. Bouye, who didn’t allow a touchdown all season. Later, Brown ripped a 27-yard gain on a crosser in front of Jalen Ramsey, then beat Bouye again on a spectacular, falling-backwards 43-yard TD on fourth-and-five. Brown once again finished as the No. 1 overall fantasy receiver in 2017 and should remain a top-five pick in 2018 fantasy drafts. Jan 14 - 4:58 PM

Antonio Brown (calf, illness) is active for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Jaguars.

Brown's torn calf is still an issue and it's possible, if not likely, the Steelers will employ him as a decoy. AB could easily have a blow-up game—he's the best receiver in football, after all—but the injury and his matchup against Jacksonville's league-best secondary make him a risky bet in DFS. Le'Veon Bell and JuJu Smith-Schuster would benefit if Brown is limited or suffers an in-game setback. QB Josh Dobbs, G Matt Feiler, OT Jerald Hawkins, WR Justin Hunter, NT Daniel McCullers, CB Coty Sensabaugh and S J.J. Wilcox round out Pittsburgh's inactives for Sunday's game at Heinz Field.

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.

ESPN's Dan Graziano reports that the "expectation" is that Antonio Brown (calf) is active for Sunday's game against the Jaguars.

As previously reported, Brown took part in Saturday's walk-through. Per Graziano, the Steelers' main concern is "about (Brown's) calf holding up in the cold weather." It's a valid concern, but what seems clear is that Brown will be part of the Steelers' 46-man roster for the Divisional Round.

NFL Network's Aditi Kinkhabwala reports Antonio Brown "looked fully healthy" during a walkthrough Saturday morning.

Kinkhabwala went on to say Brown should be ready to play for the Divisional Round against the Jaguars. Despite the tough matchup against Jalen Ramsey, Brown is a top-tier play in fantasy after going 10-157-0 in their previous meeting.

Antonio Brown (calf/illness, questionable) is a game-time decision for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Jaguars.

Brown's calf is reportedly "still an issue" despite practicing this week. He's expected to play, but his status may go down to pre-game warmups. Playing at less than 100 percent, Brown could struggle in a matchup with Jalen Ramsey.

Antonio Brown (calf, illness) is questionable for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Jaguars.

Brown was sent home with an illness on Friday but is fully expected to suit up for Sunday's game at Heinz Field. AB gets a tough draw against All-Pro Jalen Ramsey but still managed 10 catches for 157 yards when Jacksonville visited Pittsburgh in Week 5.

Antonio Brown (illness) did not practice Friday.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Brown should play Sunday against the Jaguars "if he can get over the illness." The skeptic would say the Steelers may use the "illness" as a cover-up for Brown's calf issue, but it sounds like Brown will play. Things won't be easy against Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye.
Jan 12 - 12:57 PM

Antonio Brown (calf) is practicing in full for Sunday's Divisional Round game against the Jaguars.

Brown is set to return this week after sitting out the final two games of the regular season with a torn calf muscle. He'll have his work cut out for him against All-Pro Jalen Ramsey, though Brown still put up 10 catches for 157 yards when he faced the Jags in Week 5.
Jan 10 - 5:02 PM

Antonio Brown (calf) was a full participant in Monday's practice.

There already was little concern about Brown sitting out Sunday, but a full practice early in the week all but assures he will be ready to go barring a setback. Brown caught 10 passes for 157 yards against the Jaguars in Week 5.
Jan 9 - 12:18 PM

According to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, there is "every expectation" Antonio Brown (calf) will return in "full form" for the Divisional Round against the Jaguars.

Sidelined since suffering a partial calf tear on December 17 against the Patriots, Brown will have had nearly a month to recuperate when the Steelers host Jacksonville. When Pittsburgh faced the Jags in Week 6, Brown went off for ten catches and 157 yards, tearing through Jacksonville's predominant zone coverage.
Jan 8 - 4:34 PM

Antonio Brown (calf) returned to Steelers practice on Monday.

Brown said he "feels good." The news comes after ex-NFL receiver Chad Ochocinco posted video of himself working out with Brown in Miami. Even if he's not 100 percent, Brown is going to suit up against the Jaguars in the Divisional Round.
Jan 8 - 1:32 PM

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Antonio Brown's (calf) rehab is "going well."

Tomlin said Brown would be questionable if the Steelers had to play this weekend, but, luckily for them, they do not. Brown will also probably be questionable for the Divisional Round, but there is a good shot he gives it a go.
Jan 2 - 12:15 PM

According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Antonio Brown (calf) is unlikely to be ready for the Wild Card round of the AFC playoffs.

Brown suffered a partially torn calf in last week's loss to New England and has already been ruled out for the remainder of the regular season. The Steelers are hoping to have him back for the Divisional Round, but they'll have to get there first. Pittsburgh is currently a game ahead of Jacksonville for the No. 2 seed (which comes with a first-round bye), but the Jaguars hold the tiebreaker by virtue of beating the Steelers in Week 5. The Steelers will look to JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant to pick up the slack in Brown's absence.

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin confirmed Antonio Brown (calf) will not play Week 16 against the Texans.

This was the expectation, but it is nice to get confirmation. Tomlin said Brown is dealing with a significant contusion to his "lower leg," but he would not reveal anything else about the injury. JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant will top the depth chart with Brown out.
