Report: Raiders "have zero clue where" Antonio Brown is

j_rud : 8/9/2019 1:23 pm
Here’s the specific content of the tweet from Williams: “10 practices into training camp and Antonio Brown has already gone ‘radio silent’ with the Raiders. They have zero clue where he is or what the progress of the foot injury is.”

Comes from a Steelers affiliate so a grain of salt may be advisable. On the other hand...

at camp though.

Maybe they have zero clue when his feet will be healed?

Maybe he is hiding

the severity of his injury, similar to what JPP did when he blew half of his hand off.

Well he was doing sprints at practice a few days ago so I doubt that.
yeah, he is not going to lose a toe

you lose digits when exposed for a very long time

I'm sure he realized his mistake right the fuck away
He probably didn't feel it at first because it as all dead calluses on

He's busy complaining about his helmet.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown has filed a grievance against the NFL to be allowed to wear the helmet he prefers, not the one the league mandates, league sources told ESPN on Friday. Brown is expected to have a hearing that will occur as early as next week, and an arbitrator will decide whether or not he gets to wear the helmet he wants.

New NFL rules being enforced this season say he can't. The helmet that Brown is comfortable in and has worn throughout his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers is no longer certified by NOCSAE -- the National Operating Committee for Standards and Athletic Equipment.

During the offseason, the NFL and NFLPA added 11 helmets to their joint list of approved equipment for this season while eliminating a grace period for other models that have fallen short in laboratory testing. By the end of last season, the NFL said 32 players were wearing helmets that now are banned. Brown was one, and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady -- who has openly complained about the rule -- was the other.
