The Pittsburgh Steelers are dealing with some ongoing drama involving star wide receiver Antonio Brown. Brown was upset on the sideline during Sunday's game, and reportedly did not show up for work yesterday.

Brown skipped Monday's meetings and film review, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. His absence has not been explained as of now.

Earlier today, Ben Roethlisberger was asked about Brown's Sunday blowup with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner, calling it "just frustration."

He was not asked about Brown's apparent absence on Monday, as that news had not been reported yet..

Brown's Twitter response to a former Pittsburgh PR staff member on Monday fueled speculation that he might want to leave the Steelers.

At this point, Brown might just be annoyed and frustrated more than anything, and this could all blow over.

However, until he speaks or shows up for work, the pot will continue to stir.
