After one game, the New England Patriots have released wide receiver Antonio Brown.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick cut short his regular media availability on Friday.

He said the NFL team is looking into "some things,'' then refused to answer several more questions about Brown, saying, "I'm done with the rest of it.'' After another question about Brown, Belichick walked out.

Earlier Friday, Nike spokesman Josh Benedek confirmed the company is no longer working with Brown, telling The Associated Press, "Antonio Brown is not a Nike athlete.''

The move comes after Brown, who already faces a civil suit contending he raped a former trainer, was accused of exposing himself to a woman working on a mural at his Pittsburgh home.

At the time of the news conference, Belichek said Brown was still on the roster.
