"He knows, we all know, Coach [Mike] Tomlin brought it up yesterday, that is a huge penalty and we can't do that," Roethlisberger said on his weekly radio show. "We put our kick coverage team in a bad situation and we can't have that, and AB knows that."
Roethlisberger added that he understands Brown's excitement after scoring and believes the officials are watching Brown closely, especially in prime time games.
Brown has cut back on the pumps, but he still enjoys a good celebration. Brown is tied for the league lead with 10 touchdown receptions entering Sunday's game with the New York Giants.
When asked about addressing the issue this week, Tomlin said he didn't because the coaching staff has "discussed it wholly" with players in the past.
"We had a setback in that area, but I don't think it requires additional discussion," Tomlin said.
