”(Brown) is always tough because he never misses practice and he never misses games,” Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley said Thursday. ”You don’t necessarily think about that scenario a whole bunch.”
Brown enjoyed a MVP-caliber season until his injury.
Brown, who became the first player in NFL history with five straight 100-catch seasons, led the league in receptions, yards receiving and was tied for touchdown catches entering the game against New England.
Brown, at 1,533 yards Cheap Logan Woodside Jersey , has more receiving yards than four other teams – Baltimore, Cleveland, Chicago and Buffalo. Coach Mike Tomlin didn’t put a timetable on a possible return.
”I’ll be honest, (Brown), you can’t replace him with one man,” Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger said. ”(Brown) is not human, so we’ll have multiple guys trying to fill that spot.”
