Heading into Week 3, Amon-Ra St. Brown faced a critical test following a toe injury during the Week 2 showdown against the Seattle Seahawks. The question on everyone’s mind was whether he would be fit to play in Week 3 against the Atlanta Falcons.

In the lead-up to Week 3, St. Brown faced some challenges during practice due to his toe injury. However, over the course of the week, he made a remarkable recovery, participating in practice sessions. Despite being listed as questionable, he made himself available to play against the Atlanta Falcons last Sunday.
Amon-Ra St. Brown’s unwavering commitment to overcoming his injury was evident as he took the field wearing a steel plate in his boot during the Falcons game to mitigate the effects of the injury he had sustained in Week 2.
