Brown apologizes

PITTSBURGH- Antonio Brown insists he didn’t mean to disrespect his coach or create a distraction when the All-Pro wide receiver livestreamed the raucous aftermath of the Pittsburgh Steelers’ playoff win over the Kansas City Chiefs last week.

The ever social media savvy Brown also didn’t rule out doing it again.

Even as Brown apologized for his decision to let his over 650,000 Facebook fans in on a usually private moment – one that caught head coach Mike Tomlin using a profanity to describe the New England Patriots – he played coy Wednesday when asked if he’s going to leave his camera off the next time the postgame locker room door is closed.

“I guess you’ve got to wait and see,” Brown said.

In a way it was “AB being AB,” a phrase often repeated by Brown’s teammates whenever the talented if occasionally overly exuberant star’s antics cross the line from harmless fun into something they find themselves having to explain.

The past three days fell into the latter, with Pittsburgh’s preparations for its AFC championship meeting with New England taking a back seat to Brown’s 17-minute post that forced Tomlin to opening chastise one of the league’s best players for something Brown considered innocuous.

“I wanted to give the fans an intimate experience,” Brown said.

Too intimate it turns out. The livestream violated the league’s social media policy – a policy Brown said he wasn’t aware of – and opened him to discipline from his head coach, who called Brown’s decision to hit the “live” button on his Facebook app “foolish” and “selfish.”

Adams hurting

GREEN BAY, Wis.- Green Bay Packers coach Mike McCarthy says receiver Davante Adams may not practice until Saturday because of an ankle injury, the latest question for a receiving group that may also be without Jordy Nelson for the NFC championship game.

Adams got hurt in the 34-31 win last week over the Dallas Cowboys. The third-year wideout had a breakout regular season with 75 catches for 997 yards and 12 touchdowns.

McCarthy said that Adams would focus on rehab during practice Wednesday, as would Nelson. Nelson missed the Cowboys game with injured ribs.
