Based on Pittsburgh Put up-Gazette, the explanation Antonio Brown didn’t play within the Steelers season-ending sport vs. the Bengals is as a result of he elected to sit down out follow after a dispute with a teammate earlier within the week.
“The disagreement occurred Wednesday morning throughout a routine walk-through follow that precedes their common afternoon follow on the South Facet. Brown turned disgusted and threw a soccer in anger at one in all his teammates, a number of sources stated.
After that, Brown didn’t follow the remainder of the week. Based on a supply, it was Brown’s choice to not follow together with his teammates.”
The report added that Brown confirmed up at Heinz Area anticipating to play which shocked teammates. Brown left the stadium at halftime.
As for his knee damage:
“Tomlin stated after Friday’s follow that Brown was having his knee examined as a result of his All-Professional receiver “didn’t really feel comfy sufficient to [practice].” However a number of sources indicated Brown’s knee wasn’t a problem in any respect and was by no means examined.
Brown by no means even tried to check his knee in pregame warm-ups, regardless of Tomlin indicating his standing for the Bengals can be a game-time choice.”
Clearly, that is horrible information for the Steelers and raises critical questions on their greatest participant. They’ve already handled the Le’Veon Bell scenario and also you surprise how for much longer they may put up with Antonio Brown.
