Brown shared pictures of his feet on social media. Unfortunately, the Raiders may not even get the chance to experience the positives that Brown brings to the team if he keeps his word.
"You know me, it is like waiting for Santa Claus", Gruden said of anticipating Brown's return.
Quarterback Derek Carr #4 of the Oakland Raiders talks on the sidelines with head coach Jon Gruden during the fourth quarter against the Baltimore Ravens at M&T Bank Stadium on November 25, 2018 in Baltimore, Maryland.
The Raiders have no timetable on Antonio Brown after he was found with extreme frostbite on his feet from cryotherapy. "However, sometime in the next couple of weeks, Brown once again tried to take the field with his old helmet, which he had since had repainted with colors approximating - but not completely mimicking - the Raiders' silver-and-black design".
Brown has since been listed on the injury report as day-to-day.
Well, we thought he was entering his first season with the Oakland Raiders. Brown is now suffering from a odd foot injury which can put a stop on his games. In limited screen time, Brown conveyed an honesty to his outlook. The Raiders got Brown from the Pittsburgh Steelers in a trade deal and had to give their third and fifth-round draft pick in exchange. Brown's inability to practice obviously hinders the process. NOCSAE will not certify any helmet older than 10 years. From there, it was claimed Brown had begun ignoring the Raiders' brass altogether, going "radio silent" and leaving the organization with "zero clue" about the progress of his foot, or lack thereof - per Chase Williams of WPXI in Pittsburgh.
That is, of course, assuming the report that refutes the other report holds true. He tried to convince league officials to let him wear his old helmet during a 2-hour conference call on Friday. Yeah, seriously. Brown claims the new helmet makes it harder to catch the ball.
