Jaguars Injury Report: LB Brown, PR Mickens listed as questionable against Steelers

The Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback, who contemplated retirement in the offseason, was asked about Sunday's divisional round playoff with the Jacksonville Jaguars potentially being his last at Heinz Field.

Bortles struggled with accuracy in Sunday's windy victory over the Buffalo Bills, throwing a pair of near-interceptions and finishing with fewer passing yards (87) than rushing yards (88). The Steelers got a first-round bye as the AFC's number two seed, giving him an extra week to heal.

STEELERS quarterback Ben Roethlisberger points to Houston Texans' outside linebacker Jadeveon Clowney (90) after Clowney was called for grabbing his face mask during the second half of a game earlier this season. Look for the Steelers to get Bell more involved and keep him involved. "I am grateful to be in the situation we are in".

"We did beat them the first time, so to have all the confidence coming out of there is interesting", Jaguars DT Malik Jackson says.

One of the National Football League season's most shocking results was Jacksonville going into Heinz Field and hammering the Steelers 30-9 on October 8. The wild-card game is the only time these two teams played in the postseason. Running the ball and forcing turnovers is just what the Jaguars do.

Bell, who reeled off five 50-plus-yard receiving games, caught a career-best 85 passes (for 655 yards) this season despite playing just 15 contests.

It could be a redemptive game for Roethlisberger after his terrible regular season outing against the Jaguars. And kind of like our defense has played all year, they were incredible. It started in Week 16, when they rushed for only 92 yards against the San Francisco 49ers. Byard intercepted two of Bortles' passes in the regular-season finale in Nashville.

The problem for Jacksonville is that the Jags definitely need to worry about the Steelers' passing game, while Pittsburgh can load up to stop Leonard Fournette and dare Bortles to throw.

With the running game integral to the Saints' success, Thomas has to establish himself on Sunday in order to prevent Minnesota from consistently loading up the box.

I'm not sure they can afford to have him out of uniform, even if he is just a diversion. "This is the freshest I've ever been going into the playoffs so we'll see how it goes".

Brown hasn't played since he left a December 17 game against the New England Patriots in the second quarter because of a contusion in his lower left leg.

"I'm not looking for comfort", he added, "I don't seek it".

"I think we've all seen Antonio play enough that we know what he's capable of", Tomlin said at a news conference. "I know what I do and what I bring to the table. He has done that all year long". Fournette had a great day running the ball racking 181 yards rushing and two touchdowns to go with it. Bortles finished with a 95 yards and an interception. The Jaguars have allowed over 130 ground yards in four of their past five outings, and the Steelers will hit the Jags with one of the game's best offensive fronts as well.

Antonio Brown's calf is good to go.

"Everything is a concern when you want to play better, when you don't play well", Marrone said. "We've got to come out with our A game".
