PITTSBURGH — Steelers large receiver Antonio Brown is inactive for Sunday’s game against the Ben-Gals having a knee injury, while running James Conner yields to the line up after a three-game lack with a shoulder injury.

Brown underwent knee distress following a week’s loss into the New Orleans Saints and did not practice weekly. He concludes the regular season with 104 catches for 1,297 yards and 15 touchdown catches.

The Steelers prepared rookie wide receiver James Washington to get an expanded role from the lack of Brown. Wide receiver Ryan Switzer explained all playmakers must grab the slack with brown-out.

Conner resolved to the field pregame and looked fluid creating a couple cuts. He’s got 909 racing yards and 12 rushing touchdowns in 12 games.

In other injury information, safety Sean Davis (quad) and linebacker Vince Williams (toe) may also be inactive.
