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.

The Jaguars will face the Steelers at Heinz Field Sunday at 1:05 p.m. "I'm glad I'm able to be on my feet today talking to you guys". "We'll bring him back in the building (Saturday) and continue with his game readiness".

Brown is nearly one month removed from a partially torn left calf muscle that occurred against the Patriots on December 17.


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

Brown missed Friday's practice with an illness, but he practiced in full the rest of the week, and coach Mike Tomlin said that he's "looked really good". In the first meeting this season back in Week 5, he had much success posting 10 catches on 19 targets for 157 receiving yards. He topped 100 yards in five of his past six and also has at least five receptions in every postseason game he's played since his 2010 rookie year.
