Antonio Brown joins Raiders walkthrough without helmet

August 20, 2019 - 2:53 pm

ALAMEDA, Calif. (AP) — Star receiver Antonio Brown was back on the field for the Oakland Raiders on Tuesday after missing the previous practice as part of his dispute with the league and union over his helmet.

Brown took part in a walkthrough without wearing a helmet and then went into the weight room as the rest of his teammates stretched. Brown came back out toward the end of the stretch but wasn't wearing a helmet like all of his teammates who were practicing. The Raiders then held a brief practice out of view of the media.

Brown didn't attend practice Sunday as he works to find a helmet that he's comfortable using and that meets safety standards set by the NFL and NFLPA.
