Injuries: Antonio Brown leaves practice with illness

Injuries: Antonio Brown leaves practice with illness

PITTSBURGH - wide receiver is expected to play in Sunday's AFC divisional game against the Jaguars, coach Mike Tomlin said Friday.

Brown returned to practice on Monday after suffering a calf injury against the New England Patriots in Week 15. "But what people don't necessarily see is how hard that player works on the tape, in practice, how competitive he is in practice".

Jacksonville Jaguars backup linebacker Blair Brown sprained his left ankle during practice Wednesday, a potentially big loss considering starters Telvin Smith and Paul Posluszny already were dealing with injuries. 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.

Brown was a limited participant during the final practice of the week.

Brown set an National Football League record with 100-plus receptions in five consecutive seasons, including 101 this season.

"As soon as the incident happened, with an MRI, and we're in a police auto right to the hospital - I'm pretty grateful", he told reporters on Monday. "I'm glad I'm able to be on my feet today talking to you guys".
