Antonio Brown misses Friday practice with illness, not a setback from injury

If you were like me, when you saw news coming over Twitter stating Antonio Brown missing the Steelers’ Friday, and final, practice before their AFC Divisional Playoff game vs. the Jaguars, you expected the worse.

It wouldn’t be considered out of the realm of possibility for Brown to experience a setback to his calf, which he injured in Week 15 vs. the Patriots, but that wasn’t the reason he missed practice Friday. He missed because he was sent home with an illness, per Mike Tomlin.

Mike Tomlin says Antonio Brown was sent home w/ an illness, but that he's "looked really good" all week.
