Pittsburgh's best weapon has been sidelined at least until the postseason.
Steelers star wideout Antonio Brown suffered a partially torn calf muscle in Pittsburgh's 27-24 loss to the Patriots, NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported, per a source. While Brown's regular season is over, the wideout's injury won't require surgery and the Steelers hope that he can return for the postseason, Rapoport added.
As the story said, QB Ben Roethlisberger went to Bryant and Smith-Schuster in the clutch moments of the game, but he targeted Rogers on the final play of the game, which turned out to be an interception. The Steelers look to be in good shape to at least get a first round bye, which should help Brown's chances to return in the postseason.
