Steelers players think Antonio Brown wasn’t injured

On the same day that Steelers coach Mike Tomlin told reporters he has no question to doubt the veracity of Brown's claim that he had a knee injury last week, multiple unnamed Steelers players tell Aditi Kinkhabwala that they don't believe Brown was injured.

Fowler also notes Brown was upset with Roethlisberger after the veteran quarterback criticized his route running after a loss to the Denver Broncos, and that "the emergence of Smith-Schuster has complicated Brown's future".

Tomlin, speaking at his end-of-season news conference, said Brown had soreness in his knee, ankle and feet last week.

Tomlin said he was an "active participant" in trying to get in contact with Brown, who also skipped Saturday's walk-through.

Groups were quick to criticize the move, including the Environmental Law and Policy Center, as well as Democratic Rep. The EPA proposal Friday would be another administration rollback of federal enforcement under the Clean Air Act.

There was a report on Tuesday that Brown purchased a custom ring worth $20,000 in the shape of a goat, likely referencing himself as the "greatest of all time".

"I've reached out to him numerous times", Roethlisberger said.

It seems unlikely that Steelers will trade Brown, and even more unlikely that the Steelers would trade him to the Browns.

Antonio Brown (L) has requested a trade after an alleged spat with Steelers teammate Ben Roethlisberger (R).

Paceman Jasprit Bumrah finished with 3-53, following his six-wicket first innings haul, and left-arm spinner Ravindra Jadeja 3-82. The wicket triggered bear hugs and backslaps among the Indian side as travelling fans in the sparse crowd roared with joy.

The report added that Brown showed up at Heinz Field expecting to play which surprised teammates.

It hasn't stopped. As Tomlin spoke, Brown - who has two years remaining on his four-year, $72 million deal he signed in the spring of 2017 - published a post on Instagram to his 3.1 million followers saying "I am divinely blessed with free will".

"I'm obviously not the coach or the owner, so I'm not sure what's going to happen", Roethlisberger said. "I hope he's back here with me because he makes me better".

Left tackle David Bakhtiari, who was dealing with a hip injury during the week, watched most of the second half from the sideline. His most recent head coaching duties came with the Detroit Lions from 2014-17, leading the team to the playoffs twice.

"When you lack success, when you fail, change is a part of it", Tomlin said.
