Brown tweeted a photo that appeared to show both of his feet were inbounds. Brown posted a "derogatory remark" with the photo, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.
Brown said he doesn't regret making the comment and will accept any punishment the NFL might hand out.
"When you’re passionate about something, you speak your mind," Brown said Tuesday night on his radio show on 970 ESPN. “Touchdowns are hard to come by in the NFL. That would have given us a two-touchdown lead and made it harder for [the Texans]."
Brown also had a touchdown grab called back when it was ruled his toe came down out of bounds.
Brown drew a team-high 13 targets, catching nine balls for 90 yards. It was his 23rd straight game with at least five catches and 50 receiving yards. He'll face the Colts in Week 8.
Garbage time was kind to
Brown was held without a catch in the first quarter and didn't really get on a roll until the Browns had the game well in-hand. He snagged his first reception with just under two minutes left in the half and added a 23-yarder before intermission that merely served to run out the clock.
He caught one for 23 yards in the third quarter before padding his stats thereafter. He added three catches for 39 yards in the fourth quarter to finish with seven receptions for 118 yards.
Brown, who has totaled at least 84 yards receiving in every game this year, will try to keep up the good work next Monday night against visiting Houston.
The five catches tied a season low, but Sunday was the first time in five games Brown finished with less than 90 receiving yards. He also failed to score for just the second time in five games.
Brown has been targeted at least 10 times in four straight games. The Steelers are back in action Week 6 at Cleveland.
Over at the Fantasy Football Today blog, I noted a handful of players who left Fantasy points on the field in Week 4. Whether it was due to a play called off due to penalties or just an overthrow by a quarterback, a handful of guys could have helped you more than they did in this weekend.
