Steelers: Frustrated Antonio Brown Tweets About Trade
After a 42-37 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Steelers are still looking for their first win of the season and star wide receiver Antonio Brown is frustrated.
Brown let his feelings be known to Steelers Offensive Coordinator Randy Fichtner on the sideline during Sunday's game, in which he caught nine passes for 67 yards but no touchdowns.

Bengals: Joe Mixon Out 2-4 Weeks (Knee)
Bengals running back Joe Mixon underwent arthroscopic knee surgery on Saturday, which will sideline him for two to four weeks, according to Rapoport.
Mixon had 21 carries for 84 yards against the Ravens Thursday night, including a 21-yard run in the fourth quarter when he returned to the game with the injured knee. He has 236 total yards and one touchdown so far this season.
Veteran Giovani Bernard is expected to take Mixon's starting spot for the time being. The Bengals have road games against the Carolina Panthers and Atlanta Falcons up next before hosting the Miami Dolphins and Steelers.
NFL: Former Ravens WR Mike Wallace Out 'Indefinitely'
Former Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace suffered an ankle injury during the Eagles' Week 2 loss in Tampa Bay Sunday, and is out "indefinitely," per ESPN’s Adam Schefter. It could be a season-ending injury, and Wallace is reportedly undergoing further testing Monday. Wallace signed with the Eagles this offseason.
Philadelphia could look to add a deep threat. The Eagles already signed former Raven Kamar Aiken after he worked out for the team last week. Former Raven Breshad Perriman was also reportedly part of that workout and could be of interest after Wallace's injury.
