To no surprise, Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has been ruled out of Monday night’s game against the Chiefs. To some surprise, his ankle injury is bad enough that it could cause him to miss, per a source with knowledge of the situation, a few games.

After Sunday’s win over the Giants, Brown said he has a high ankle sprain, but that he’ll be fine. (Rarely is any player with a high ankle sprain ever “fine.”) We later reported that it’s not a high ankle sprain, and that in the hours after the game it wasn’t regarded as severe.

Per the source, it’s worse than believed. Beyond Monday night’s game, the Steelers face the Ravens, the Browns, and then the Ravens again.

This is where Cotchery needs to step up

Hopefully our Big Nastys up front are firing on all cylinders and we won't need the WRs and the passing game that much

Also I think Sanders will rise to the challenge when we need it

I had a high ankle sprain once, they're a bitch to recover from.

Again.. every year, Baltimore lucks out. Always facing us short-handed without one of our spark-plugs.

2005: Tommy Maddox over Roethlisberger
2009: Dennis Dixon over Roethlisberger
2010: Charlie Batch over Roethlisberger
2011: Woodley injures himself a week before against NE
2012: Troy & AB out while Ben could potentially have a baby in a few weeks.

Nothing changes. We ATLEAST need to split. I love everything about Cotch. Hopefully, he can bring a different kind of dynamic.

In fairness, the Ravens are with a banged up Suggs and Ngata and without Lewis and Webb. I think the Steelers are still at an advantage. Anyway, I saw this as well and wrote a story on it myself:

even more reason to dink, dunk, dink it some more, get Heath open, sprinkle in the running backs - I expect a contending team to be even more focused when their #1 wr goes down

What ever happened to players playing 50 games straight or more without game missing injuries. IMO our team has had more KEY injuries then any other since the beginning of last season, and possibly before that, but I'm not talking about just our team. Sure players have always got hurt, but they get hurt a lot more and they miss more time. Suggs, Adrian Peterson, and Mendy all healed suspiciously fast, but other then that, it seems like players are alwaya missing games due to "minor" injuries. I'm not talking about any one injury specifically, but in general. Anybody else remember Ronnie Lott voluntarily cutting his finger off IN GAME to continue playing? The only thing I've seen in years that was close was Ben getting his nose shattered and still beating the Sh**birds. Tomlin needs to pull out some Rocky Blier tapes and the s*** he played through.

We'll beat them without him. Ravens fans on their board are gleeful. Getting a cheap win over us is fine and dandy with them. The inferiority complex for them is stunning actually.

We have a good vet on our WR corps. That's why we signed him. Let AB get healthy and see him in Dallas.

Huge loss. Time for Wallace to deliver.

Can't avoid the injury bug this year.

Wallace and Cotchery have to step up. Cotchery's value as our 4th WR becomes even more apparent now. I view him as a solid 3rd WR on most teams.

Sanders, Cotch, wallace will take on the challenge....As good as AB is he is not the only guy on the field.

Antonio Brown could be back for next Ravens game, in two weeks

The parade of missing players for Sunday nightís Ravens-Steelers game in Pittsburgh could have one less float when the AFC North rivalry returns to Baltimore in two weeks.

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown, the teamís MVP in 2011, could be back from a sprained ankle in two weeks, per a source with knowledge of the situation.

Brown sprained the ankle two weeks ago in a game against the Giants. It wasnít expected to be serious at the time, but he has missed two games, and he likely will miss next Sundayís game at Cleveland.

In addition to Brown, the latest installment of one of the best sports rivalries will be played without Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger or Steelers safety Troy Polamalu. Missing for the Ravens are linebacker Ray Lewis, cornerback Lardardius Webb, and cornerback Jimmy Smith.
