NFL Roundup: Steelers' Brown out of MNF, Giants activate Hill

The SportsXchange

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown was ruled out of Monday night's game against the Kansas City Chiefs, NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk reported Saturday.

Brown sustained a high ankle injury during last Sunday's win against the New York Giants. A source told Pro Football Talk that Brown could miss a few games because of the injury.

The injury was reported by the team as not serious, but the sources said it is worse than believed.

Emmanuel Sanders, who was fined $15,000 this week for faking an injury, will start in place of Brown. Sanders appealed the fine. The Steelers were also fined $35,000.

---The New York Giants activated safety Will Hill, who returned to practice this week after serving a four-game suspension for using the supplement Adderall.

Hill had seven tackles while seeing action in the Giants' first five games of the season.

Cornerback Michael Coe, who suffered a hamstring injury in practice Wednesday, was placed on injured reserve. A six-year veteran, Coe had eight tackles (six solo) and two passes defensed. He also had five solo special teams tackles.

---The Dallas Cowboys promoted cornerback Vincent Agnew and cut linebacker Gary Guyton in preparation for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles, according to the team's website.

The moves were made Saturday because of cornerback Mike Jenkins' back injury. Agnew was called up from the practice squad to replace him. To make room, the team parted with Guyton.

Jenkins is listed as questionable on the team's injury report, but Agnew will likely play Sunday.

Guyton, who spent four seasons with the New England Patriots, joined the Cowboys during the week and practiced through Friday as the team's 3-4 defense has been thin at linebacker due to injuries.

Despite that, he was cut Saturday. That suggests that Dan Connor, who is listed as doubtful with a stinger, might be able to play.

---The Oakland Raiders are cutting starting cornerback Pat Lee, the San Francisco Chronicle reported Saturday.

NBC Sports' Pro Football Talk reported that the move is being made in anticipation of cornerback Ron Bartell's return from a shoulder injury.

Lee started the last seven games for Oakland. Bartell was placed on the injury reserve/designated for return list after breaking his shoulder blade in the season opener against the San Diego Chargers.

---The 4-year-old son of Oakland Raiders assistant coach Terrell Williams died Friday, the team announced.

Tyson Williams died after battling an unexpected illness for more than a week while hospitalized at Oakland Children's Hospital.

"We were all shocked by the news we received when we arrived in Baltimore last night," coach Dennis Allen said in a statement. "Terrell and Tifini have been dealing with unimaginable tragedy this week, and our hearts go out to them. We're all deeply saddened by the passing of Tyson, and our deepest sympathies go out to Terrell and his entire family."

Allen said the defensive coaching staff will share the workload while Williams is away with his family. The Raiders are at the Baltimore Ravens on Sunday.
