When one talks about wide receivers in the NFL. Antonio Brown is certainly one name you cannot ignore. The wide receiver has been instrumental for the Pittsburgh Steelers over the years and at 33, Brown has maintained those standards for the Bucs.

Brown had a game-high 93 yards on nine catches in the Bucs’ triumph on Thursday, connecting with Tom Brady for a 23-yard touchdown catch in the first quarter. Despite missing Week 3 because of a COVID-19 designation, the 33-year-old wideout has been effective in his five games this season, ranking second in yards behind Mike Evans (418) and tied for second in end zone visits with Evans and Rob Gronkowski (4).

After a stellar campaign against the Eagles, alarming news came from his camp in the buildup to the clash against the Chicago Bears. Head coach Bruce Arians informed the media that Brown missed today’s practice due to a sprained ankle ailment, according to team source Rick Stroud.

According to Rick Stroud, Antonio Brown has a sprained ankle which forced him to miss a practice session. “Bucs WR Antonio Brown didn’t practice due to a sprained ankle,” he tweeted. One must feel for Antonio, as just when things were looking to get better for Brown, he faces this setback. With Antonio Brown potentially out against the Chicago Bears, the rest of the team now has to put up a spirited performance to maintain their positive momentum.
