Steelers' Brown sent home from practice

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown reportedly will be a game-day decision regarding his playing status for Sunday's playoff game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Brown missed Friday's practice because of an illness, and the Steelers list him as questionable for Sunday's game. But Pro Football Talk reported, based on a source, that Brown's playing status is not expected to be determined until game day.

Coach Mike Tomlin said he didn't "have a lot of reservations about (Brown) from a physical health standpoint."

Brown has been sidelined for the final two weeks of the regular season since sustaining a calf injury in a 27-24 loss to the New England Patriots on Dec. 17.

"I think we've all seen Antonio play enough that we know what he's capable of," Tomlin said of Brown, who was a full participant in practice on both Wednesday and Thursday.

While Brown was absent on Friday, cornerback Artie Burns (knee) and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (elbow) were full participants in practice. Both are expected to play in Sunday's divisional-round game versus the visiting Jaguars.

Brown has 101 receptions for an NFL-best 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns in 14 games this season for the Steelers (13-3). The 29-year-old Brown has 733 catches for 9,910 yards and 59 touchdowns in 115 career games since Pittsburgh selected him in the sixth round of the 2010 draft.

Burns started every game for the Steelers this season and joined Joe Haden and Mike Hilton as a respected cornerback threesome. Burns had one interception this season.

Tuitt recorded 25 tackles, 3.0 sacks and one forced fumbles this season.
