Default Inj updates - Steelers notebook: WR Brown expected to miss Chiefs game

Receiver Antonio Brown (sprained ankle) isn’t likely to play Monday against Kansas City despite the extra day of rest he’ll get.

Coach Mike Tomlin said Tuesday it’s possible an extra receiver will be added to the 53-man roster.

Emmanuel Sanders , who had a 63-yard punt return against the Giants, will stay in that role if Brown can’t play, and he may add kickoff return duties if running back Chris Rainey is limited by his rib cartilage injury.

Rainey could play, but Tomlin said he will be in “big time discomfort.”

• Troy Polamalu (calf) and Marcus Gilbert (ankle) are all but certain to be sidelined — Polamalu for the fifth consecutive game — but could get work in practice for the first time in weeks. There’s a chance Polamalu could play Nov. 18 against the Ravens.

Gilbert had his protective boot removed late last week. Running back Jonathan Dwyer (quadriceps) is expected back after missing the Giants game, and Rashard Mendenhall (Achilles) will get a heavier practice load this week.

• With Dwyer back, Mendenhall on the mend and Isaac Redman coming off his 147-yard game against the Giants, Tomlin must sort out who gets the carries against the Chiefs on Monday. The offensive linemen seem to prefer having one running back getting all or most of the carries because it’s easier to mesh when a line starts anticipating where a back is going. Tomlin didn’t name a starter and said the running back who “gets the totes” will be the one who is running well.

Let Brown rest, it gives Sanders a chance to prove himself and step up. Fine with me. Cotchery is a great #3.

two words for this team right now: quality depth

Only the Steelers could have someone like Cotchery, with sure hands, as a fill-in for the #3 spot

Gilbert, don't really care so much right now - let him fix a few other things other than his injury from what I'm hearin

I would like ot see Gilreath, but I dont think they will bring one up off the PS and then have to get him to clear waivers, etc. I guess we go the 3 WR's on gameday and keep in mind that there are 3 TE's on the roster as well.

Let Gilbert, Troy, AB, Rainey recover. Get some more guys reps at Punt return this week in case of injury. Batch can work on kickoff return. Next Man Up!!

Steelers to promote WR David Gilreath to the active roster in wake of Antonio Brown injury

By Neal Coolong on Nov 7



Such a move would all but confirm Brown's absence for the Steelers' Week 10 game against the Kansas City Chiefs. It would also bring with it the removal of a player from the 53-man roster.

Tribune-Review reporter Mark Kaboly tweeted Wednesday the Steelers plan to sign wide receiver David Gilreath from its practice squad before the Steelers' Week 10 game on Monday Night Football against the Kansas City Chiefs.

The move would be in response to the ankle injury suffered by WR Antonio Brown in Week 9 against the Giants. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said Brown isn't expected to play in Week 10. Signing Gilreath would essentially be a confirmation of that.

The Steelers announced earlier Wednesday they signed free agenty WR Derek Moye to their practice squad, so clearly another move will follow.

Without Brown, the Steelers would only have three wide receivers active, barring a move, so clearly the Gilreath move is coming, and Brown won't play Monday.

Pittsburgh has been living by the run the last three games anyway, and elimination of seldom-used 4WR sets - assuming tight end Heath Miller isn't used as the fourth wide receiver in that formation - wouldn't hurt much.

Gilreath performed well in the preseason, prompting some to push for his inclusion on the team's active roster at the beginning of the year. He was cut and resigned to the team's practice squad.

With Antonio Brown and Chris Rainey both ailing, Emmanuel Sanderscould be the key to the Steelers return game this week.

“Emmanuel looked like a pretty good option to me last week,” said Tomlin. “The ball will be in his court first.”

He won’t be alone in being asked to step up, but Tomlin will also be cautious how he uses certain players.

“We’ve got capable candidates, some of which are limited in terms of what we will allow or ask them to do,” said Tomlin. “But we have capable guys. Mike Wallace has returned kicks in the past. We’ll leave no stone unturned in terms of being competent in that area and I know that we have a lot of guys that are willing and capable volunteers.”
