AB on the mend... Bump^


What is that, a treadmill inside a hyperbaric chamber?!?

Can't really tell if he still has a limp/hitch, but it kind of looks like it to me. Jogging in a week, probably 80-90% for divisional game.

It's an alter G or "anti-gravity" treadmill

It lets you lower the amount of weight you are running with (through the skirt like thing around AB's waist)

Ok makes perfect sense then. Not wanting to over work the injured calf with full weight/impact. Step in the right direction though... ;)

So walking with less than full weight? I'd say that is not nearly as far along at this point as I would have hoped.

As long as he's able to keep the muscle contracting and relaxing, and increasing circulation to/through it without any setbacks, he should be mended up by the 14th.

It’s a Body weight support treadmill. He wears a suit around lower body. Zips into the tent part. And it’s inflated/pressurizes inside the formed vacuum to take weight off. So he can walk with, for example 25 percent less body weight. Neat stuff

Pending WC weekend plays out as expected, I don't think having A.B. is a must in order to beat the Jags. Now, if he's out for the AFCCG....well, it may be time to panic.

I don’t know about this............McDonald and Bryant are starting to blossom. If they can continue to play well and we get JuJu and Bell the ball, I still think this offense has enough to get out of the AFC.

The defense scares me.

Tomlin, in his presser, said if game was this week, AB would be listed as Questionable.

PITTSBURGH (AP) Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown is inching toward a return from a left calf injury.

Brown hasn’t played since injuring the calf in the first half of a loss to New England on Dec. 17. He posted video of himself working out on a treadmill on Monday. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says he ran into Brown on Tuesday and believes Brown’s rehab is ”going well.”

The AFC North champion Steelers have the week off before hosting a playoff game on Jan. 14. Tomlin says if Pittsburgh had been forced to play this weekend there’s a chance Brown would be in the lineup. Brown led the NFL with 1,533 yards receiving this season despite missing the final 2+ games.

That's the biggest BS line I've heard from Tomlin this year. There's no way AB would have been in the lineup.

You'd rather Tomlin publicly share intimate details about AB's recovery to make it easier for opponents to game plan against us?

He caught passes from the jugs machine today. Ben says he’ll be ready for the playoffs.

Video/pics/links needed to verify your statement

You have 5 minutes to do so or your post will be assumed to be false

Recent experience says give it at least 12 hours.

Since they didn't quote Tomlin, I'm going to assume they derived "chance" of being in the lineup from Tomlin stating at his presser on Tuesday that, if there were a game this weekend, Brown would be listed as questionable for it.

Per team source: Antonio Brown was out catching passes from the Jugs machine on Tuesday, another indication his progress is, according to Mike Tomlin, going well.

Thanks Pabst, I don't post false statements. From Good Old Mountain Dew and them that refuse it are few.

Never mind the injury, anyone got pictures of the lady throwing him passes today? That’s quite the nickname.
