Report: Steelers WR Antonio Brown was on the bench, was not injured, for the game on Sunday



When the receiver from Pittsburgh Steelers Antonio Brown was deactivated for Sunday's game, everyone assumed that this was due to a knee injury, according to Steelers, whom he dealt with during the week.

Instead, Brown was reportedly replaced by drama during the week, which included missed practices and meetings.

Jerry Dulac and Ed Bushett's explosive story from the Pittsburgh Post Gazette, citing several sources, says Brown chose to sit out in training after a confrontation with an unknown teammate. Aditi Kinhababwala of the NFL Network said Brown and defender Ben Retlisberger disagreed on Wednesday.

Dulac and Bushett wrote that Brown does not play the obligatory game against the Bengalis ”had nothing to do with knee injury. ” Brown also missed the Saturday walk and team meeting, and then appeared on Sunday, expecting to play in accordance with Dulac and Bushett. One of the players, the Steelers, told the Post-Newspaper that the situation was “embarrassing” and “the worst I've seen.”

The Steelers season ended after they didn’t get the help needed to participate in the playoffs. But the question arises, can the Steelers return Brown after this?

Antonio Brown missed workout all week

The Post-Gazette states that the whole fiasco began on Wednesday, when Brown had a disagreement with his teammate. "Post-Herald" did not provide details of what happened or which of Brown's teammates he upset, but said Brown "I felt disgusted and threw the soccer ball in anger at one of his teammates. ” Kinhababwala did not specify whether Brown had thrown a soccer ball at Rawlisberger.

Then Brown sat in training for the rest of the week, and the Steelers player told Post-Gazette that it was Brown’s decision. Kinhababwala confirmed that Brown missed workouts and meetings during the week.

Another part of the history of the Post-Gazette will attract some attention from the office of the league: the story read: "Brown's knee was not a problem at all, and it was never tested. ” During the week there were reports of discomfort that he felt with his knee. Brown was listed as missing on Wednesday due to the coach’s decision, and then changed to coach decision / knee on Thursday.

Someone wanted to convey to the media that Brown's knee was bad, presumably to hide what was happening. NFL does not apply to teams that are on the injury report.

What will the steelers do with brown?

Brown is one of the best receivers in the NFL and loyal to the Hall of Fame. This is also not the first time that the Steelers has problems outside the field. The Post-Gazette says that Brown missed the obligatory meeting, which led to the game at week 16 against the Saints, but still played.

This is a difficult position. Brown’s behavior, according to sources in the Post-Gazette, is unacceptable. He is also an indispensable player. Steelers looked at ease in the 16-13 victories over the Bengals, although one of the players told the Post-Newspaper that the situation with Brown last week and how the team dealt with it affected his desire to play in the game. . It seems fair to wonder if the whole drama was the reason why the Steelers did not play well.

Brown will turn 31 next season. JuJu Smith-Schuster became a legitimate star after two seasons. If the Steelers were going to leave Brown, it would be easier now than ever before.

After the Post-Gazette message came out on Monday, it’s hard to see how Brown can return in 2019.
