VIDEO: AB Will Play Week 1 After Emotional Apology
Oakland Raiders receiver Antonio Brown will play Sunday against the Denver Broncos after facing a possible suspension by the NFL team.
Brown had a heated confrontation with general manager Mike Mayock this week after Brown posted a letter from the club on social media outlining more than $50,000 in fines for absences during last month's training camp.
"Antonio is back. We're really excited about that," said head coach Jon Gruden. "Ready to move on...we're happy to have him back."
When asked about Brown playing against the Broncos, Gruden responded, "That's the plan, yes."
The wideout gave an "emotional apology" at a team meeting earlier Friday along side the club's captains.
Brown missed time at training camp because of frostbite on his feet from a cryotherapy mishap, and his battle with the league over his helmet.
His absences prompted Mayock to issue a statement during camp that the team needed to know if Brown was "all-in or all-out."
