Steelers WR Antonio Brown (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday’s game against the Bengals after not practicing all week. He went for tests on the knee on Friday after experiencing “discomfort,” HC Mike Tomlin said. We’ll look for further updates on Brown’s status.

If Brown is unable to play, WR JuJu Smith-Schuster would get a boost in volume, and rookie James Washington would likely step in as the #2 WR.

He's played well at less than 100% throughout his career and will be a strong Week 15 fantasy start.

He's in an excellent spot this weekend at home against the Chiefs.

The weather for today's Steelers-Browns game doesn't look quite as bad as it appeared it might be 24 hours ago. Light rain is expected throughout with winds of 10-20 mph.
