Steelers coach Mike Tomlin says Antonio Brown's quad injury wasn't re-aggravated | Updated: 2018-08-14 10:10:10

LATROBE, Pa. -- Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown did not re-aggravate his injury during Monday's practice and was scheduled to sit out team drills, coach Mike Tomlin said.

Brown finished individual work on his injured quad and was sidelined for the rest of practice. He was walking around with no limp and no trainers around him both during the practice session and as the team broke for the day.

Brown's quad is fine, and nothing significant changed that Tuesday, a source told ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Brown missed five training camp practices but returned in full over the weekend. Tomlin said he would continue to manage Brown's workload, not push it.

"It's August," he said.

A tweet from a Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reporter indicated that the All-Pro receiver left the practice field with a limp. Brown did not stop to address reporters, but he seemed to indicate to a staff member that he was going to the bathroom when he walked off after individual drills.

The Steelers could choose to rest Brown for the second preseason game on Thursday at Green Bay. Brown is looking to build off his NFL-record fifth consecutive 100-catch season.
