Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown said he is "getting better" after suffering a left leg injury Sunday in the first half of the Steelers' 27-24 loss to the New England Patriots.

Speaking briefly to reporters Tuesday night at a charity event at Ross Park Mall, Brown wouldn't speculate on whether he will return this season. He is listed as out for the Steelers' game Monday at Houston. It will be the first regular-season game he has missed because of injury since November 2012.

"We'll see," Brown said. "I'm looking forward to the process of getting better and see where it leads."

Brown leads the NFL with 101 catches and 1,533 receiving yards. It is his fifth consecutive season with at least 100 receptions, an NFL record.

Brown and Champs gave $200 gift cards to 84 honor roll students from Holy Family Academy on Tuesday night.
