Steelers star WR Antonio Brown returns to the team

The Pittsburgh Steelers have had another internal personal arise with star wide receiver Antonio Brown electing to not show to practice on Monday that has caused much media scrutiny around the situation.

Brown has returned to the practice field on Wednesday that signaled that things are back in order between both sides. Head coach Mike Tomlin has voiced that the team has disciplined the 30-year-old for his actions, according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.

“He and I met yesterday for an extended period of time,” Tomlin said after Wednesday’s practice. “I’ll leave the nature of that conversation between us. There was discipline involved for his missed meeting on Monday.”

This should bring a resolution to the situation now that Brown is back in the fold with the focus shifted back toward preparing for the Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. His agent has also quieted all the noise surrounding his social media actions after he voiced that the Steelers would find out his real worth to their success if they traded him.

The Steelers have struggled out of the gate for the season failing to secure a win in their first two games and are coming off a disappointing Week 2 loss at home against the Kansas City Chiefs. This has pushed them down to a tie with the Cleveland Browns for last place in the AFC North.

The Steelers will likely rely heavily on Brown in the passing game as the primary target. He is off to a strong start in the first two games played with 18 catches on 33 targets for 160 receiving yards and a touchdown.
