Mike Tomlin expects Antonio Brown to play vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Share

The Jacksonville Jaguars have now finished up their Friday practice and released their final injury report ahead of their Sunday road Divisional Round playoff game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Tomlin did say that Brown has "looked really good" this week in his return from a calf injury and said the move to send him home was strictly to avoid getting other teammates sick.

Everyone full expects Brown to play, but I'm not sure how much he'll be able to help your fantasy team.

However, the 29-year-old will have the hard challenge of going up against arguably the best defense in the league that features a stout cornerback duo of A.J. Bouye and Jaylen Ramsey in the secondary.

Brown returned to practice on Monday after suffering a calf injury against the New England Patriots in Week 15. So, there is always that to cling to.

Brown set an National Football League record with 100-plus receptions in five consecutive seasons, including 101 this season. Both players are listed as questionable after being limited practice participants on Friday. He has shown he can be a game-changer in first campaign hauling in 58 catches for 917 receiving yards and seven touchdowns.
