Antonio Brown practices, but it's not clear whether he'll play Sunday

Antonio Brown has been accused of rape in a civil lawsuit filed by a former trainer he met while they both attended Central Michigan

Darren Heitner, a lawyer representing Brown, told The Associated Press his client plans to countersue.

Rosenhaus told ESPN's Cari Champion that he and Brown had been "anticipating" the possibility of these accusations coming to light, but emphatically called the allegations "false" and said he wouldn't be doing this Live interview if he didn't believe his client. He was definitely spotted at New England's first practice of the week on Wednesday, however, wearing a temporary No. 1 jersey during warm-ups and team stretching.

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown (84) runs a pattern during warmups before a game against the Green Bay Packers at Investors Group Field. "Some have taken me up on it and others haven't". "Speaking out removes the shame that I have felt for the past year and places it on the person responsible for my rape".

Taylor is willing and planning to meet with the National Football League next week.

"We are aware of the civil lawsuit that was filed earlier today against Antonio Brown, as well as the response by Antonio's representatives", the Patriots said in a statement.

One of the highest profile athletes in sports was accused Tuesday of three counts of sexual assault, and the alleged victim is a Memphis native. The team will cooperate with any league investigation, the team spokesperson said in the same statement. "If such police investigations exist, we would certainly be interested in those reports and any related evidence gathered", he said.


"Everything is framed by the team and winning and that's how they operate", the source explains, further noting that Brady and wife Gisele Bündchen used to "have a welcome to Boston BBQ at the beginning of the season" for new Patriots. He agreed to a contract with New England on Saturday but has yet to play for the Patriots.

According to the lawsuit, the first incident occurred in June 2017. The suit includes what it says are text messages from Brown bragging about the second assault.

"But, because her professional relationship with Brown was important and because she took it seriously, Ms. Taylor willed herself to brush off the episode, hoping that Brown would stop pursuing her", the lawsuit states.

"It may help Brown to argue that if this was a truthful, a fully truthful claim, that she would have alerted law enforcement".

This does not mean that the Patriots are allowing Brown to wear a prohibited helmet, though.
