Antonio Brown expected to be game-time decision

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown officially ended the week listed as questionable on the team's Friday injury report after failing to practice earlier in the day because he was sent home sick. Brown was sent home from Friday's practice with an undisclosed illness, and he's still recovering from a torn calf that has kept him out since Week 15. I didn't want him to get any of the guys that weren't sick, sick. Brown's calf is reportedly "still an issue" despite practicing this week. "We'll bring him back in the building (Saturday) and continue with his game readiness".

Cornerback Aaron Colvin (illness), linebacker Telvin Smith (ankle) and linebacker Paul Posluszny (abdomen), who all sat out Wednesday, were limited at Thursday's practice.

The No. 5 overall pick in the 2016 NFL Draft, Ramsey had four interceptions during the regular season and added a game-clinching pick in last week's 10-3 playoff win over the Buffalo Bills.

Brown led the National Football League with 1,533 receiving yards despite playing in only 14 games and ranked fourth in the National Football League with nine receiving touchdowns in 2017.

But for now, it's probably safer to trust Tomlin when he says Brown will play Sunday.
