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.

Um...unless you think we can't beat four win Houston and zero win Cleveland...we will have bye rest too.

Only if the NFL allows us to win.

Fuck this crap.

The team did what few people thought was possible. I agree, the officials screwed us. How could they not call DPI on the Bryant TD? I hated the final offensive play, but it should have earned a DPI. Whatever NFL

It really has nothing to do with AB, but whether the NFL wants NE to win another SB or not.

Unless they are setting up the biggest Disney feel good movie of the year, We will be home for the SB. I would love for the opposite but they need to get the killer instinct to finish teams off. The foolishness of battle of attrition and crap is ridiculously asinine when you have an explosive offense. This is the equivalent of replacing the Ferrari engine w/ a Pacer engine.

bye rest for us means nothing

We had the Pats coming off a short week, on the road 2 weeks in a row, with a beaten up roster.

By the time we meet them again (big IF), they will be well rested, at home, and fully loaded. Kiss the season goodbye

One could argue that nothing would bring more money to the NFL and jersey sales than watching Shazier cheer on his team from the sideline and hoist the Lombardi after the game...

It doesn't matter.

We lost AB and didn't skip a beat. We still had the NFL overturn an obvious TD to steal a win from us.

Tom Brady is an NFL darling, and PIT is a comparatively small market team. No rational, objective person could watch that game tonight and think the NFL doesn't manipulate games to desired outcomes.

Steel, we should beat both Houston and Cleveland, making us the number two seed.

Therefore we will not play New England until the AFCCG.

Therefore we will have each played a game the week before.

And if we can't beat Houston and Cleveland, we don't deserve a bye.

Even then, if we didn't, we would be the three seed, so if we win our WCG game, we STILL wouldn't play New England until the AFCCG.

Did the NFL order Mike Tomlin to call off the dogs instead of try for a two score lead late?

WE got ourselves into the mess that allowed the officials to make the call that fucked us.

I believe the pass catch rule is stupid and allows the NFL to manipulate the game, but all James has to do is hold on to the ball.

He didn't. NFL can't fuck is of James holds onto the ball.

I thought they fixed that rule after the dez Bryant no catch call which was also a stupid call to this very day. That was a TD and so was James. Both those guys caught the ball and then tried to score, so to me that's like 2 separate thought processes/plays...why does the nfl insist that these are 1 long play that doesn't end until they see or don't see a wobble. I don't get it.
