News: Brown caught 4-of-4 targets for 24 yards in Sunday's preseason tilt against Green Bay.
Impact: The Steelers limited Brown's playing time with good reason, taking no chances with their No. 1 receiver. An offensive pass interference call against Brown negated his 58-yard touchdown reception, but it appears he and Ben Roethlisberger are in sync, picking up where they left off last season.

News: Brown caught his only target for a six-yard gain in Friday's preseason game against the Jaguars.
Impact: Coming off one of the best seasons by a wide receiver in NFL history, Brown has enjoyed a healthy training camp and offseason. Markus Wheaton and Martavis Bryant are both candidates to see more looks this year, but Brown is still a safe bet to rank among the league leaders in targets per game.

News: Brown is unlikely to play in Sunday's preseason opener, Bob Labriola of Steelers Digest reports.
Impact: The Steelers are expected to hold some veterans and key players out as a precaution, as well as to provide an opportunity for young players to gain more reps.
