Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown played through a calf injury to torch an elite Jacksonville Jaguars secondary for seven catches, 132 yards, and two touchdowns on Sunday. It wasn't enough, however, as the Steelers fell to Jacksonville in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. Brown was listed as questionable heading into the game as he injured his calf back in Week 15 against the New England Patriots. He looked no worse for the wear as he shredded a Jaguars secondary that was one of the best in the league this past season. Despite the loss, Brown got good news as quarterback Ben Roethlisberger told reporters he planned to return in 2018 after contemplating retirement throughout the season.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (calf) is active for the Divisional Round game against the Jaguars on Sunday. Despite being active, Brown will not be 100 percent and may be used as a decoy against Jacksonville's league-best secondary. As a result, he'll be a risky DFS pick, although he could still blow up against shutdown cornerback Jalen Ramsey. If Brown is used as a decoy, receivers JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant will need to step up.

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (calf) is "not close" to 100 percent ahead of Sunday's Divisional Round game against Jacksonville, according to Adam Schefter of ESPN. Per Schefter, Brown will test his previously-torn calf in pre-game warmups, at which point the Steelers will decide whether Brown is healthy enough to play. "My guess is he will be active and give it a go," a source told Schefter. It sounds like even if Brown is dressed and plays, he will be limited and/or used as a decoy. The Steelers were already going to have to count heavily on Le'Veon Bell, but JuJu Smith-Schuster and Martavis Bryant will likely have to play bigger roles.
In a bit of good news, Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown (illness/calf) was present and participated in a team walkthrough on Saturday morning.

According to Brown's teammates, the star receiver looks fully healthy and the team is optimistic that he will be able to play against the Jacksonville Jaguars. The only concern left is how his calf will respond to the cold weather that the teams will be facing in Pittsburgh. As of now, it would be a mild surprise if he doesn't play on Sunday.
