Antonio Brown, Percy Harvin headline early game NFL inactive lists

Brian McIntyre
Shutdown Corner

Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown will not play on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, despite being listed as "questionable" on Friday's injury report. Brown, who signed a five-year, $41.96 million contract extension in August, has 42 receptions for 499 yards and one touchdown in 2012 and will miss a third consecutive game with an ankle injury.

Also inactive on Sunday is Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Percy Harvin, who did not practice all of last week and was listed as "doubtful" with a left ankle he sprained in a Nov. 4 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. In a bit of drama on Sunday, Vikings running back Adrian Peterson missed the team bus, arriving separately to Soldier Field shortly after the rest of his teammates.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will be without starting cornerback Eric Wright (Achilles) against the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. The Falcons will have wide receiver Julio Jones, who had been "questionable" with an ankle injury. Also dressing for the Falcons are linebacker Sean Weatherspoon (ankle/illness) and cornerback Asante Samuel (shoulder), who were also listed as "questionable" on Friday's injury report.
