It’s uncertain if or how long Antonio Brown will be suspended by the Raiders, but it sounds like he at least won’t be in uniform on Monday night. NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport reports (via Twitter) that the Raiders are “not planning to have” their star receiver for Week 1. While it’s uncertain whether Brown will be suspended or merely listed as inactive, he likely won’t be in attendance for the team’s home opener vs. the Broncos.
Rapoport also passed along a quote from colleague Stacey Dales, who said the team is hoping to works things out. During an appearance on NFL Network, agent Drew Rosenhaus echoed that sentiment, stating that the “goal is to salvage this relationship.”
