Antonio Brown's calf is good to go. His immune system? Not so much.

The Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver was sent home from practice Friday with an illness, coach Mike Tomlin told reporters. Tomlin did say that Brown has "looked really good" this week in his return from a calf injury that sidelined him for the season's final two weeks.

In other injury news, Steelers cornerback Artie Burns (knee) and defensive end Stephon Tuitt (elbow) were full participants in practice and should be good to go Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

If and when Brown gets over his illness, Pittsburgh will enter this postseason far healthier than in years past.

Word is that AB has looked fantastic, coupled with the Tuitt/Burns news, Steelers look to be completely healthy and ready to roll.

I'm assuming part of the reason they sent him home was to avoid getting anyone else sick.

Does loss of fluid impact the calf muscle injury?

ive only stayed at a holiday inn but... No it does not and he'll also be getting an IV of fluids as needed. He was sent home to guard against his bug being spread throughout the team.

That was my first thought. What a shitty thing it would be to have an almost completely healthy team wiped out by a flu bug.

Not reported earlier, but it looks like J-Wobble is back too! Good to hear.

Steelers CB Artie Burns (knee) returned to practice on Friday.

He hyperextended his right knee on Wednesday. With Javon Hargrave (back) and Stephon Tuitt (elbow) also back at practice, Pittsburgh should be relatively healthy for Sunday's Divisional Round game against Jacksonville.

Anyone else gets anxious about the injury report? I swear I hate waiting for the news to come out and some doomsday report follows...

It will never end will it?

It's a (possible) negative thing almost every day with this team.

I am BRUTALLY nervous for this game, yet I can't wait any longer for 1 pm Sunday.
