Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown left Sunday's win over the New York Giants in the second quarter, dealing with an ankle injury of some kind. After the game he told reporters he had suffered a high ankle sprain, but expected to be back in Week 10. Pro Football Talk has followed up Brown's comments with a league source indicating the sprain is not of the high ankle variety, and that Brown could very well be back next week.
Antonio Brown finished the game with two catches for 19 yards. The Steelers host the Chiefs in Week 10.
Fantasy Impact: Brown remains the Steelers leading receiver, but he is now coming off back-to-back poor performances. He faces a potentially juicy matchup against the Chiefs, so fantasy owners will want to pay close attention to his status as the week progresses. The game is a Monday Night Football matchup, so he gets an extra day to heal his ankle. The first significant news will likely be the first practice participation report on Thursday.
