Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown’s absence from Sunday’s 16-13 win over the Cincinnati Bengals reportedly resulted from an argument with a teammate rather than a knee injury.

According to Gerry Dulac and Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown threw a football at one of his teammates in an “unspecified heated dispute” during a walkthrough before practice Wednesday and then decided not to practice for the remainder of the week. 

He was reportedly not present for Saturday night’s team meeting.

Now everyone is weighing in on if the Steelers actually need AB’s services. 

ESPN’s Ryan Clark doesn’t think so. 

Clark was appearing on SportsCenter with Scott VanPelt and didn’t have any nice things to say about the star wide receiver.

“When it comes to just being a good teammate, when it comes to just being supportive, understanding that you’re trying to achieve one goal, that doesn’t matter to him,” Clark said of Brown, in an appearance on SportsCenter with Scott Van Pelt.

“What matters to him is 19 attempts, 14 catches, 185 yards, two touchdowns against the Saints. That’s what’s important to Antonio Brown.”

Check out AB’s comment below, aimed directly at his former teammate. 

Looks like NFL Free Agent Terrelle Pryor enjoyed AB’s comment. 

Clark and AB have history. 

They almost came to blows in practice back in 2012. 

“That day in practice, Antonio and I almost got into a fight,” Clark said on ESPN, “because he’s saying things at (defensive coordinator Dick LeBeau), screaming at Coach LeBeau, screaming at us defensively, saying, ‘Don’t touch me; I’m the franchise,’ this and that.”

Looks like Clark really dislikes AB.
