Well, that didn't take long. Earlier today I wrote about Pittsburgh Steelers cornerback Curtis Brown as it relates to him missing practice and being inactive the last few games and now Burt Lauten has taken to Twitter to sort of update his status.
Lauten posted in his update that Brown, who was listed on Thursday as not practicing once again, has been excused for personal reasons.

Being as Brown has missed both Wednesday and Thursday, you can probably expect that he will be listed as doubtful or out on the Friday injury repot and that means he will again be inactive for the game Sunday against the New England Patriots.
As for the personal reasons, I am not even going to begin to speculate as to what those might be. Hopefully it isn't anything serious.
