Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown had a sideline tiff with offensive coordinator Randy Fichtner during Sunday's loss. Then, Brown did not show up for work on Monday.

Brown's absence stirred up speculation that the veteran star was unhappy in Pittsburgh and looking for a trade elsewhere. His agent Drew Rosenhaus tried to put an end to those rumors yesterday.

Today, the Steelers begin game planning for their Week 3 matchup against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Brown needed to show up today to ensure he will play this week.

Fortunately, he has, according to numerous Steelers reporters.

The Steelers are already without Le'Veon Bell, though James Conner has done an excellent job filling in at running back. Still, the team can ill afford to not have Brown, its best player.

There has certainly been some turmoil in Pittsburgh so far this season. Is the team really in danger of going off the rails? Or is this just a storm they will weather?

Time will tell.
