Wide receiver Antonio Brown did not report to the Pittsburgh Steelers' facilities Monday, head coach Mike Tomlin confirmed to Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

Asked if he's exhausted of Brown being the same player he's asked about repeatedly regarding social media issues, Tomlin bristled, then pointed to his team's 0-1-1 record heading into a Monday Night Football matchup with the 2-0 Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Pittsburgh is still without running back Le'Veon Bell who continues to holdout after getting placed on the franchise tag for the second consecutive season.

"And non-football-related things, such as social media decorum and et cetera, so hopefully that'll be the last time I'll be discussing things such as that in this setting". The team's best player not showing up for work the day after he visibly harangued a member of the coaching staff and engaged in a snarky social media exchange with a former team employee - all this just days after he apologized for an implied physical threat against a member of the national media - is further evidence of a team whose culture is leaking. Seriously", Tomlin said. "We gave up a few big plays, we're playing a team that's big-play capable.
