PITTSBURGH (KDKA) — Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was taken to the hospital after hurting his calf during Sunday’s game against the Patriots.

It happened in the second quarter when Brown collided with a Patriots player in the end zone.

Two trainers helped Brown walk off the field. Brown was keeping weight off of his left foot.

He was later seen walking out of the medical tent and heading back to the locker room.

The Steelers initially said Brown sustained a left calf injury and his return was questionable, but they later said he was being taken to the hospital for further evaluation and would not return.
