Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was selected to his fourth Pro Bowl a few weeks ago but unfortunately he won’t be able to participate this year because of the concussion that suffered a few weeks ago in the AFC Wild Card game against the Cincinnati Bengals.
Pro Football Talk is reporting Wednesday afternoon that Miami Dolphins wide receiver Jarvis Landry has been chosen as an injury replacement for Brown, who set new career-highs in both receptions and receiving yardage this past season.
Brown, who suffered a concussion late in the game against the Bengals as a result of hit by linebacker Vontaze Burfict, was unable to play in the team’s Sunday Divisional Round playoff game against Denver Broncos after failing to make it through the league mandated protocol program.
In addition to being voted to the Pro Bowl this year, Brown was also voted a first-team All-Pro for a second year in a row.
The Pro Bowl is Jan. 31.
