Nothing gets Steelers fans going with a #FAKENEWS Twitter storm like one of their own reporters, Ed Bouchette from the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, tweeting that Antonio Brown limped off a practice field on Monday. AB shot back with the tweet you see above and then the ESPN insiders chime in that it’s nothing, not an injury aggravation.

You know what this is? It’s a recipe for Ed to get death threats from Steelers fans until he tweets something that shifts the masses back to the other end of the spectrum. I was there last year with Steelers fans when their players were launching helmets into defenseless players. Remember when I called them the CTEelers before Ryan Shazier ended his career? Steelers fans thought — and still think — I’m the anti-Christ.

Good luck to Ed on this one. To his credit, he didn’t delete the tweet. Ed’s been covering the team since 1985. I’m sure he’ll be able to handle himself on this one.

Mike Tomlin said the plan for Antonio Brown today was for him to do individual work and that is all. No injury aggravation

Schefty checking in on this matter:

Even though Steelers’ Antonio Brown limped off practice field today, he did not aggravate his quad injury and he is “fine”, according to a source familiar with his condition. Nothing significant.

And Jeremy Fowler, who has moved on from covering the Browns full time:

Antonio Brown on Monday participated in individual drills but not team work. He’s walking and dancing from the sideline without any noticeable pain or limping. Steelers aren’t going to push his leg injury. “It’s August,” coach Mike Tomlin said.
