Antonio Brown out? Steelers' Mike Tomlin frustrated with star receiver's antics

Report Ben Roethlisberger was involved in conversation that led to Antonio Brown's'flare-up

But Tomlin would not play Brown at that point.

After walking out of Wednesday's practice ahead of the 2018 regular-season finale, Brown was inactive against the Bengals on Sunday. He ended up playing second fiddle, statistically, to fellow Steelers wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster, who had 1,426 receiving yards to Brown's 1,297.

The Browns are now listed as the top team in the market for a Brown trade but it's highly unlikely that the Steelers would want to jumpstart rival Cleveland as a perennial playoff team.

"We're talking about our darkest hour. the guy not communicating is a very real element of discussion".

Tomlin said he has not received a formal trade request from Brown, according to Kinkhabwala. "I will certainly talk to him".

On Monday, reports surfaced of an altercation between Roethlisberger and Brown that led to the star wideout missing this past weekend's game. "I hope he's back here with me because he makes me better".

Wide receiver Antonio Brown skipped training and the Saturday night meet leaving the Heinz Field, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, at halftime due to an apparent fallout with quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

United Kingdom alarm as migrant boats cross Channel
Defence Secretary Gavin Williamson has said the UK's armed forces "stand ready" if needed to prevent further crossings. There has been an increase in recent weeks in the number of migrants traveling from France to England in small boats.

"No", Tomlin said. ".There's disappointment. I don't run away from it.

"That's the kind of baffling thing to me. But he and I talked Thursday morning and there were no issues".

"If they sign off, I always feel good about it".

"We take his lack of presence.as something very significant and will be handled appropriately so", Tomlin said Wednesday.

It's open season on Antonio Brown in the media, with pundits saying it's time for the Steelers to trade him, and former teammate Ryan Clark referring to the receiver as a "monster". "Don't want to speculate a lot".

For the past several years, this portion of the calendar has seen Cincinnati Bengals fans have little to watch except other AFC North teams.
