Mum on the helmet issue since it came to light on Friday, Brown issued a statement via Twitter on Monday following news of ruling. "My last helmet, I wore in four Super Bowls, so it was a pretty great helmet for me, and I hated to put it on the shelf, but that was what they said to do, so I'm dealing with it and working with something else". "And he does play and he doesn't retire as some people have reported he will do". He was then immediately placed on the non-football injury list, but was taken off the list under 48 hours later.

"I have a lot of confidence that he's one of the premier competitors that I've ever been around", Gruden said at the time. Because now you've forced him into wearing a different type of helmet. "And I think at that point, though, the liability will be dramatic".

According to NFL Network, Brown tried to use his old helmet at Raiders practices, but the paint didn't quite match up.

The dispute started back in 2018, with the passage of a rule requiring all equipment to be certified by NOCSAE (National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment).

"The player can't practice or play in games with equipment that's not approved".

While Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown says he won't play football unless he can wear his old helmet that is now banned by the NFL, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady acknowledged that it's been an adjustment for him to get used to a new helmet.

The source also pointed out the fact that across his decade in the league, Brown had suffered only one concussion. "I think that's what needs to be said", Gruden told reporters. "It doesn't make any sense". The helmet Brown has grown accustomed to is no longer permitted under league rules, and he's not at all interested in wearing one that satisfies the league mandate.

Brown has yet to be a full participant in Raiders training camp practices while he deals with a bad case of frostbite on his feet, although he was cleared to practice on July 28.
