Bill Belichick won’t commit to Antonio Brown playing against Dolphins

Bill Belichick

The New England Patriots appear as though they are going to leave Antonio Brown’s fate in the hands of the NFL.

Bill Belichick told reporters on Wednesday that Brown, who had a sexual assault lawsuit filed against him in a Florida court on Tuesday, will practice with the team leading up to Sunday’s game against the Miami Dolphins. The coach said the allegations against Brown are being taken “very seriously” and would not say whether Brown will play Sunday.

If the Patriots were planning to suspend or release Brown, it is unlikely that he would practice on Wednesday. There has been talk that Brown could be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, which would basically be a paid suspension while the NFL investigates the claims against him further.

Brown’s former trainer, Britney Taylor, has accused the receiver of sexually assaulting her twice in 2017 and raping her in 2018. Brown’s attorneys dismissed the allegations as a “money grab,” and the Patriots were reportedly unaware of them before they signed Brown last week.
