Brown Misses Bengals Game Because of Dispute, Not Knee Injury

By Brandon Wallace

PITTSBURGH, PA – Reports from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette stated that Steelers’ star wide receiver Antonio Brown entered a “dispute” with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger. This led to Brown walking out from practice last week.

Original reports early last week stated that Brown was “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Cincinnati Bengals due to an apparent knee injury, but Mark Kaboly of The Athletic reported that it was Big Ben who threw a football at an angered Brown’s feet during the Wednesday walk-through. Brown ended up not practicing Thursday or Friday.

Final reports are saying that Brown did not play in the Bengals game for “disciplinary reasons” and not for a knee injury.

This incident seems to cap off a long line of off-the-field issues with Antonio Brown this season that I’m sure the organization is looking to quickly put behind them as the early off-season commences.

More details to come.
