Pittsburgh Steelers' wide receiver Antonio Brown will not play Sunday against the Denver Broncos.

The Steelers' announced Friday that Brown has been ruled out after suffering a concussion in last week’s AFC Wild Card win over the Cincinnati Bengals.

Brown had a strong day against the Broncos when the teams met on December 20.

He got a touchdown against Denver Broncos cornerback Chris Harris, Junior had not given up a touchdown in two years.

Brown also had 16 catches for 189 yards against the Broncos, according to Denver7 Sports Director Lionel Bienvenu.

"It was the best versus the best, and he won," Harris said after the game to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. "I haven't given up a touchdown in two years. For me to come out here and play the way I played is disappointing. I definitely let the team down. He's a great player. The best receiver in the game right now, but I didn't make any plays in this game."

The Steelers' are expected to issue a full injury update after the team's practice on Friday.
