Buccaneers suffer blow as Brown ruled out of Packers clash

Tampa Bay Buccaneers receiver Antonio Brown was ruled out of this weekend's NFC Championship game with the Green Bay Packers after failing to recover from a knee injury, head coach Bruce Arians said Friday.

Brown tweaked a knee during the Bucs 30-20 NFL divisional round win over the New Orleans Saints, and was kept on the sidelines for much of the game.

Although a subsequent MRI scan revealed no serious damage, Arians said the 32-year-old was not fully recovered for Sunday's game at Lambeau Field, where the Bucs will battle the Packers for a place in the Super Bowl.
