That is a legitimate question.

The star receiver was not at practice Friday - typically a sign of a Steeler's eventual absence from the game day lineup under Tomlin - but Tomlin explained that Brown was sent home with an illness.

"I didn't want him to get any of the guys who weren't sick, sick", Tomlin said, via the Associated Press. We don't have a lot of reservations about him from a physical health standpoint.

Only two players received game status designations from the Jaguars on Friday and they were linebacker Blair Brown (ankle) and wide receiver Jaydon Mickens (hamstring).

Antonio Brown's calf is good to go.

Last season, Le'Veon Bell sat out practices during the postseason for what the team termed noninjury or personal reasons, and Bell later revealed he was nursing a groin injury.

This comes just a couple of days after Brown was a full participant in practice for the first time since suffering the torn calf in Week 15 against the New England Patriots. He's also the only receiver who managed to top 100 yards against the Jaguars defense this year when he finished a Week 5 loss with 157 yards on 10 receptions.
