Green-Ellis (toe) misses Patriots practice

FOXBORO It remains to be seen if New England's BenJarvus Green-Ellis can have a repeat of his career-day in last Sunday's win over the New York Jets. It looks as though his big day may have taken a toll on him.

Green-Ellis, who rushed for a career-best 136 yards on 27 carries in New England's 30-21 win, did not practice (toe) on Thursday. It is unclear if the injury is severe enough to keep him out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Dallas Cowboys.

Among those others who did not practice on Thursday were Josh Barrett (thumbhamstring), Jerod Mayo (knee), Vince Wilfork (not injury-related) and Mike Wright (concussion) who was placed on the injured reserve list.

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Brown apologizes for 'distraction' caused by Facebook Live video

Pittsburgh Steelers wideout Antonio Brown posted an apology on social media Tuesday night for his Facebook Live video that has caused a stir over the last few days.

"I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans," said Brown in a statement on his Twitter. ""It was wrong of me to do, against team and NFL policy, and I have apologized to Coach Tomlin and my teammates for my actions.

"I'm sorry to them for letting it become a distraction and something that they've had to answer questions about while we're preparing for a big game on Sunday."

Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said on Tuesday that he has “absolutely no worries on the video's effect" on Sunday's game against the Patriots, but it was "selfish and inconsiderate" of his star wide receiver.

Brown could still be fined for violating the league's social-media policy. The policy states that players, coaches and football operations personnel are banned from using social media on game days 90 minutes before kickoff, during games, and before "traditional media interviews."
