Antonio Brown #84 of the Pittsburgh Steelers reacts after a 33 yard touchdown reception in the fourth quarter during the game against the Green Bay Packers at Heinz Field on November 26, 2017 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. And now two weeks into the season, things appear to have gotten a bit more hectic for the Steelers.
Tomlin was asked if Brown had an excused absence. Star running back Le'Veon Bell remains a holdout, looking for a long-term deal, and his continued absence has led to many of his offensive linemen to publicly criticize him. Brown was visibly upset on the sidelines towards the end of Sunday's loss to the Chiefs, and did not stick around long in the locker room after the game.

I'll take Brown at his word that it was a serious personal matter, but it's a coincidence this happens when people are calling him out, he's arguing with coaches on the sidelines, and the team is playing very bad football, right? There have been a couple of instances now where you've asked me about Antonio regarding some social media-like things. "I'll leave that between he and I", Tomlin said, per Bouchette. I won't utilize this forum to address such things. I understand all that.
Tomlin said he won't comment directly on player happenings on social media, which features "gray area" and "very little accountability", but he made clear players should be held to a higher standard. That's frustration associated with not playing well and not winning. There's opportunity for us to respond to it, particularly in the early portions of the year, to utilize negative experiences and things that occur, to educate our team at this point in the journey so it becomes a non-factor as we move forward, that's generally the approach that we take. I'll address that very directly with him.

If that wasn't bad enough, star wide receiver Antonio Brown was viewed on the sidelines blowing up at the offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner and it sure looked like he told him, "If you don't want me, send me somewhere else".
Add Brown to this pile and it's a rough time to be a Steelers fan.
