Injury Update For Pittsburgh Steelers Star WR Antonio Brown

Antonio Brown assisted off the field after injury.

Antonio Brown injury update: here's the latest on the injury to the Pittsburgh Steelers star wide receiver.

Antonio Brown, perhaps the leader in the NFL MVP race, left today's Pittsburgh Steelers-New England Patriots game early in the second quarter with an apparent injury.

The star wide receiver had a bit of a collision in the end zone and had to be helped off the field by trainers.

Brown, the best wide receiver in the NFL, didn't appear to be able to put weight on his left leg. It looked like some kind of lower-leg/ankle injury.

The Steelers crowd as chanting "MVP" as he got helped off the field.

It didn't look good.

Here's video of Brown being helped toward the bench area.

Brown, 29, is a five-time Pro Bowler who was surely on track for another appearance this season. Some believe he should be the frontrunner for this year's MVP. Brown's totaled more than 100 catches for 1,500 yards so far this season. Update (5:15 p.m.): Brown is headed to the locker room.

Update (5:30 p.m.): Brown has a calf injury, according to the Steelers. He is questionable to return.
