The Pittsburgh Steelers are facing the possibility of traveling to Denver and playing the Broncos without wide receiver Antonio Brown or running back DeAngelo Williams.
Brown is in the NFL’s concussion protocol after a nasty head hit by Vontaze Burfict of the Cincinnati Bengals at the end of Saturday’s AFC Wild Card Round playoff game. For his efforts Burfict has been suspended three games by the NFL but the Steelers are the ones feeling the immediate pain as their top receiver may not be on the field.

The Steelers ground game may again be put into the hands of Fitzgerald Toussaint and Jordan Todman as Williams is also a big question mark for this one. Williams visited Dr. Robert Anderson on Monday and NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport has him “not looking good” to play against the Broncos.
Toussaint and Todman combined for 123 rushing yards last week.
