Tomlin confirms Steelers WR Brown was absent from facility on Monday

Star running back Le'Veon Bell remains a holdout, looking for a long-term deal, and his continued absence has led to many of his offensive linemen to publicly criticize him.

As first reported by Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Brown was a no-show at the Steelers' facility on Monday.

Based on the fact that just two weeks ago, Brown physically threatened a reporter on Twitter, it probably won't be the last time Tomlin has to speak to Brown about social media.

When asked about Brown's tweet, the head coach declined to discuss his player's use of social media.

In the Steelers' 42-37 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 2, Brown had nine receptions on 17 targets for 67 yards.

People who already maintain psychiatric disorders are more at risk for video game addiction, reported The Washington Post. Divorce Online said there had been an increase in the number of divorce petitions referencing Fornite throughout the year.

Also on Monday, Brown responded to a critical tweet from a Steelers fan by suggesting that the team trade him in order to find out if Brown would put up the same numbers with a different franchise.

Drew Rosenhaus, Brown's agent, told ESPN's Adam Schefter later Tuesday that Brown was not asking for a trade in his now-infamous tweet and that Brown had a "personal matter" Monday. We have a lot of football things to talk about - performance, personnel, opportunities, challenges - that the game of football presents. Said Tomlin: "I just want to stay focused on what's real and what's important: our preparation and our play this week, not only ours collectively but his included". "We can end this right here and now". He's a great player, don't get it twisted, but there's no doubt Brown is a diva and has some "it's all about me" in him.

Brown has 18 catches for 160 yards and one touchdown through the team's 0-1-1 start.

When Mike Tomlin stepped to the podium inside the UPMC Rooney Sports Complex today, he did so as the coach of a team carrying an 0-1-1 record and about to face an undefeated opponent on national television, an opponent that has showcased a more potent passing attack than the one that shredded the Steelers defense for six touchdowns a couple of days before.

"This guy's a significant guy, he's been a significant reason why we've been successful around here".
