What seemed to be a potentially minor injury to Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown took on a serious tone when he was transported to the hospital on Sunday.
Brown was injured in Sunday’s game against the Patriots after a direct blow to his lower leg while he attempted to make a catch in the end zone. By video, his leg whipped into the defender’s leg, which caused his ankle to invert.
After x-rays, it was reported as a calf injury and soon thereafter Brown was sent to the hospital for further evaluation.
He is likely undergoing test of pressure in his lower leg to rule out compartment syndrome, wherein there is enough bleeding/swelling to cut off microvascular blood flow, as the muscle is constricted by fascia and has nowhere to swell. If the compartment pressure is high, Brown might need a fasciotomy, a procedure that involves the casing of the muscle being cut to allow swelling.

Compartment syndrome is one of the true orthopedic emergencies. If not treated, amputation is possible. The surgery to alleviate the issue requires a large and ugly incision, but return to full function is quick.
I doubt Brown was sent to the hospital due to a major nerve or artery issue. I also doubt he would be sent to the hospital even if it were an isolated fracture. This is the second Steeler to be taken to the hospital recently. But with proper care, this should not be anywhere near as serious as Ryan Shazier’s injury.
The best case is that it is not compartment syndrome, Brown’s calf and tibia are simply sore and he plays next week. The worst case is he has an emergency procedure and misses the final two regular season games. With the Steelers having a first-round bye, there would be a good chance he could play in the divisional round four weeks from now.
Giants receiver Hakeem Nicks missed two games in 2010 after a fasciotomy for compartment syndrome. Ravens guard Marshal Yanda had surgery for compartment syndrome in 2012 and returned to play three weeks later.

Steelers WR Antonio Brown has a partially torn calf muscle, per source. Unlikely to play next week but expected back for the postseason. https://twitter.com/AdamSchefter/status ... 0652639233
Some good news. Forum is like a pissed off hornet's nest. Thought this might lighten everyone up. Add this to Haden's likely return and the Steelers just got better then what they were the second half of today's game.

Only if the NFL allows us to win.

We won today. The NFL script said no.

Fuck this crap.
