Raiders WR Antonio Brown is visiting a specialist on Saturday for the foot issue that's had him sidelined in training camp the past few days. We've heard that Brown is just dealing with blisters, but this news suggests that it might be more than that. We'll continue to keep a close eye on the situation.
Update: A source tells ESPN's Adam Schefter that it's "not considered any type of long-term injury" for Brown.
The Patriots have released WR Antonio Brown. Enough was finally enough for New England. Frankly, we'd be surprised if another team took a shot on Brown -- but a lot has surprised us with this guy over the past month. He's worth hanging on to in fantasy leagues for now. The Patriots, meanwhile, are back to Julian Edelman and Josh Gordon as their top 2 WRs. Both guys get a nice fantasy boost with Brown out of the picture.
The NFL has made no ruling on Patriots WR Antonio Brown as of Wednesday morning. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport notes that the league tends to have a player's status decided by Wednesday, so it looks like Brown will be eligible for this weekend's game against the Jets. He played just 33% of New England's offensive snaps in his debut last week but posted a 4-56-1 line on 8 targets.
NFL Network's Ian Rapoport confirms that Patriots WR Antonio Brown is expected to play against the Dolphins today and adds that he's "a real part of the game plan and, football-wise, is ready to contribute." Brown has practiced just 3 times with his new team, so don't be surprised if he's only in on certain packages today. But he doesn't need much volume to do damage against Miami. We have Brown ranked as a high-end WR3 for Week 2.
Patriots WR Antonio Brown traveled with the team to Miami and is expected to play against the Dolphins tomorrow, according to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport. Brown's role might be limited after joining the team just a week ago, but the matchup gives him plenty of fantasy upside.
Patriots WR Antonio Brown will not be placed on the Commissioner's Exempt List prior to Sunday's game against the Dolphins, according to Dan Patrick. The league is scheduled to meet with Brown's accuser next week, so any move would likely come after that. Brown practiced on Wednesday and Thursday and seems on track to suit up vs. Miami. It's unclear how big a role he'll play after joining the team just last weekend, but Brown obviously boasts upside in a plus matchup.
