The Pittsburgh Steelers do not control their own destiny in the NFL playoff picture, so they need to win against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday to have a chance. For the Steelers, their chances of getting that win will improve if injured wide receiver Antonio Brown plays. And according to recent reports, there is a chance he'll be back.

According to NFL insider Ian Rapoport, Brown is being listed as questionable for the game against the Bengals and has a chance to play.

He is expected to work out with his injured knee before the game and make a final determination beforehand.

However, Rapoport added that Brown's knee is still feeling some discomfort.

Brown has not missed a game this season and had a season-high 14 receptions for 185 yards and two touchdowns in last week's loss to the New Orleans Saints.

He leads the league in receiving touchdowns with 15, but is behind teammate JuJu Smith-Schuster in total receptions and yards.

In a previous meeting against the Bengals, Brown had five receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown.

The Steelers and the Bengals are set to kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T.

The game will be on CBS.
