After missing just 1 game over the previous 4 seasons, Brown lost 2 to a partially torn left calf in 2017. That didn't stop him from leading the league in receiving yards for the 2nd time, of course. Brown also lost a playoff game in January 2016 to the concussion he suffered on LB Vontaze Burfict's penalized head shot. Brown's production has also taken a hit when QB Ben Roethlisberger has missed time, but Roethlisberger has avoided game-sapping injuries in 3 of the past 5 seasons.
