If this projection by ESPN Boston's Mike Reiss is correct, it'll be good for all of you Antonio Brown owners out there. Reiss wrote Saturday that he doesn't think cornerback Aqib Talib will play against the Steelers.
"While [Talib] appears to be moving better in practice, perhaps the Patriots would lean toward keeping him out one more week heading into the bye with the big-picture in mind," Reiss wrote.
Talib has missed the past two games due to a strained hip flexor.
Talib practiced in pads this week, a step forward from where he was last week. This is a late-afternoon game, but even if Talib plays, you're still starting Brown unless you are absolutely stacked at wide receiver.
