Antonio Brown getting a day off as the Steelers begin Wednesday's practice.Brown missed Wednesday’s practice at Saint Vincent because of an undisclosed injury, albeit one that is not considered serious. Coach Mike Tomlin lumped Brown in with two players who took part in the padded practice but left early because of injury: starting tackle Alejandro Villanueva and rookie receiver James Washington. Tomlin ruled each of his injured players as "day to day" while adding that each one was dealing with a minor injury.
According to our very own Alex Kozora, Brown is acting as though he has been given Wednesday off. Brown hasn’t missed very many practices over the years so it’s big news whenever he sits one out.
Villanueva watched the majority of the practice with a wrap around the upper portion of his right arm/shoulder; Washington had his left foot examined by training staff before leaving the fields on his own power, walking to the locker rooms to get further attention.Antonio Brown Jersey .
Brown, Villanueva and Washington,three players were termed “partial” practice participants by Tomlin after missing sessions earlier in camp: Safeties Morgan Burnett (left hamstring) and Sean Davis (groin) and cornerback Artie Burns (left leg/groin). Each took part in individual drills early but watched most of the practice from the sidelines.
Not practicing at all were tight end Vance McDonald (foot) and outside linebacker T.J. Watt (hamstring). Receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster (undisclosed, did not practice Monday) went through a full practice.
