Buccaneers’ Antonio Brown questionable for NFC championship game vs. Packers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers may be without a key offensive weapon for their biggest game of the year. Antonio Brown is dealing with a knee injury, which was visibly noticeable as he limped through Tampa’s divisional game over the Saints on Sunday. The former Steeler was held to just one catch for ten yards in the team’s playoff win. According to ESPN’s Bucs beat reporter Jenna Laine, Brown underwent an MRI on the ailing knee on Monday. The results of the MRI came through Tuesday and revealed there is no serious damage to the knee, according to Ian Rapoport. It appears he will prepare to play in this weekend’s NFC Championship game with the Packers, but it will very much depend on how he reacts in practice. If the injury which kept him sidelined for the second half last week keeps Brown out or limited Tyler Johnson and Scotty Miller will gain some serious value. Chris Godwin and Mike Evans, who are already must starts, will also see an uptick in usage. Keep your eyes peeled on the practice reports this week before fielding your team on Sunday.
