PITTSBURGH – For the record, Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley said Thursday that there was no sideline confrontation between he and star receiver Antonio Brown Monday night at Cincinnati.
There's been speculation that Brown — unhappy with the amount of times passes were thrown in his direction during the first half of the Steelers 20-10 loss to the Bengals — initiated an argument with Haley that remained an issue into the next day. Brown said he wasn't complaining. He just "went to the person who controls the scheme of the game to see what he could do."
Haley tabled the issue on Thursday, as Pittsburgh (0-2) prepares for Chicago (2-0).
"There's no problem whatsoever between he and I," Haley said. "And I didn't see anything different in that game interaction-wise between he and I."
