Oakland also put defensive tackle Richard Seymour (leg) on the inactive list, along with backup offensive tackle Khalif Barnes (groin), guard Lucas Nix and defensive end Jack Crawford.

Baltimore's inactives included defensive end Pernell McPhee (thigh), offensive lineman Ramon Harewood and safety Christian Thompson.

Ravens long snapper added to Pro Bowl roster

The Ravens announced Wednesday that long-snapper Morgan Cox has been added to the AFC Pro Bowl team.

It was the second straight Pro Bowl selection for Cox, added as the team’s one “need” player by AFC Pro Bowl coach Andy Reid.

“Playing in the Pro Bowl for a second time is a huge honor for me,” Cox said in a statement released by the Ravens.

Three other Ravens will play in the Pro Bowl game – fullback Kyle Juszczyk, linebacker C. J. Mosley, kicker Justin Tucker.

Guard Marshal Yanda was named to the team, but decided not to play due to offseason shoulder surgery.

The Pro Bowl will be held on Sunday, Jan. 29 in Orlando, Fla. at 8:00 p.m. on ESPN.

Antonio Brown apologizes for streaming Steelers' locker room scene

Antonio Brown apologizes for streaming Steelers' locker room scene

Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown apologized Tuesday night for streaming live video from the Steelers locker room on Sunday featuring coach Mike Tomlin calling the New England Patriots 'a--h---s' in advance of Sunday's AFC Championship Game.

Brown posted the locker room scene through Facebook Live and has since deleted it.

Ironically enough, the video also included Tomlin telling his team to "keep a low profile."

"I'm sorry for my actions and behavior after Sunday's game," Brown posted on his Twitter feed. "I let my emotions and genuine excitement get the best of me, and I wanted to share that moment with our fans."

"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 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."

Tomlin, of course, has indeed been asked about the video as the Steelers try to prepare for the AFC title game at New England.

"It was foolish for him to do that, it was selfish for him to do that, it was inconsiderate for him to do that," Steelers coach Mike Tomlin said. "Not only is it a violation of our policy, it's a violation of league policy, both of which he knows.

"There are consequences to be dealt with from his perspective," Tomlin added. "We will punish him, we won't punish us."

 Translation: He might take a hit in the wallet, but he's playing Sunday, and don't think for a fraction of a second he's not.
