Antonio Brown hasn't been on the field since he suffered a calf injury in Week 15, but the hope for the Pittsburgh Steelers was that the wide receiver would be back in time for the postseason. Brown was sent home from practice on Friday due to the illness.

Those were the lone regular-season games Brown has missed over the past five years, though he did sit out a divisional-round playoff game after the 2015 season because of a concussion.

Brown not only has an injured calf that's probably tons of fun, but he also is now battling an illness. After being listed as a limited practice participant on Wednesday, he practiced fully the final two days. Still, we all know the massive ceiling he has when he's right.

If Mickens can't return punts against the Steelers, Jaguars head coach Doug Marrone said fellow wide receivers Keelan Cole, Dede Westbrook and Marqise Lee would be considered for his replacement.

Brown led the National Football League with 1,533 receiving yards despite playing in only 14 games and ranked fourth in the National Football League with nine receiving touchdowns in 2017. "I'm glad I'm able to be on my feet today talking to you guys".
