Bengals CB Adam Jones says Steelers WR Antonio Brown was "not hurt", knows "he was faking it"

Adam Jones thinks Antonio Brown needs a "Grammy" for the way he acted when he potentially got a concussion on Saturday night.

Adam Jones joined The Dan Patrick show on Monday morning and among the topics of discussion were whether Marvin Lewis should return to Cincinnati and Antonio Brown's concussion during the final minutes of Saturday's Wild Card matchup between the Bengals and Steelers.

What does Jones think of the injury? "I know he was faking it... I think he need a Grammy award for that one."

Apparently, Jones doesn't know the Grammys are a music award... But, you get the point.

Those are some pretty serious accusations Jones is making. He also said Brown winked at the Bengals when leaving the field after going down with the injury.

Brown is expected to be able to play in the Steelers Divisional round matchup against the Denver Broncos on Sunday and according to the Denver Post-Gazette, is "fine".

Jones also discussed Marvin Lewis' return to Cincinnati, saying he "of course" wants Lewis back with the team. And, when asked about a report that said several Bengals players blame Lewis for a "lack of discipline", Jones wanted to know who the players were (they're anonymous) and said "I don't think no player said that". He also would like to know who said that as most of the guys on the team are "stand up guys."

Here is video of Brown from after the game, seemingly fine and enjoying the Steelers' win with his teammates:
