Report that Pittsburgh Steelers receiver Antonio Brown might be injured again appears to be a false alarm.

Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette first reported Monday that Brown limped off practice after some early individual work before walking back, saying via Twitter that “(Steelers head coach) Mike Tomlin said the plan for Antonio Brown today was for him to do individual work and that is all. No injury aggravation.”

Brown also refuted the original report, saying in a reply to Bouchette’s tweet, “Bro seriously have some respect you making (stuff) up clown.”

Brown also posted video apparently healthy after practice.

Brown returned to practice Saturday after missing 10 days with a quadriceps strain.

When Brown returned to practice on Saturday, it was reported that he was expected to become fully healthy in time for the regular-season opener.

Brown was named first-team All-Pro for the third consecutive year in 2017, when he had 101 receptions for a league-high 1,533 yards and nine touchdowns.
