Jon Gruden: Raiders ‘disappointed’ Antonio Brown unable to practice
Antonio Brown is dealing with some very nasty foot blisters that have prevented him from practicing much since arriving at Raiders camp.
Brown has taken part in a few practices, but not the last two days as he tries to recover from the blister issue. Coach Jon Gruden admitted that it’s disappointing that his star offensive player hasn’t yet gotten going.
No Antonio Brown at practice the two days I’ve been in Napa. “I think we’re all disappointed,” Jon Gruden said. “We want to get the party started.”

To be clear, Gruden does not seem at all frustrated with Brown, simply the circumstances. Every coach wants a full complement of players practicing as early as possible, especially when one of them is a star player in a new place.
The injury didn’t keep Brown from participating in another extravagant training camp arrival, much to the derision of one of his former teammates.
