Despite a report last week that stated Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was targeting a Week 13 return from his high ankle sprain, he might make an appearance Sunday against the Browns. The Steelers' No. 2 wide receiver made it through three limited practices this week and is listed as questionable on the injury report. He will be a game-time decision.
Brown told the media on Friday that he feels good and might play versus Cleveland if head coach Mike Tomlin allows him to do so. But isn't that how it works for basically every player? If the coach says "No," you don't go. Anyway, I wouldn't get my hopes up, and I wouldn't put Brown in my lineup even if he is active. Expectations should be low for the entire Steelers' passing game with quarterback Charlie Batch calling the shots. Plus, Brown, despite a nice matchup, certainly hasn't done to make himself a must-start. Play it safe.
