It's never a good thing when your team's star wide receiver misses a game to injury. It's even worse if he misses two.
But for the Pittsburgh Steelers, there's a chance that Antonio Brown might be able to get back on the field against the Jaguars on Sunday rather than missing yet another game nursing his injured calf.

Brown got hurt way back on December 17 against the Patriots when he got hit by two defenders while going for a touchdown.
Things have been looking up for the six-time Pro Bowler, however. He was a full participant in practice on Wednesday and Thursday, but was sent home from practice with an illness on Friday.
With Brown's calf appearing to be close to 100 percent during practice this week, it looks like he'll be good to go on Sunday after a few doses of vitamin B-12 to leave that illness behind him. But surely fans in the 'Burgh will remain cautious until they see him lining up in the first quarter at Heinz Field.
