Antonio Brown set to feature for Oakland Raiders on Monday night

Antonio Brown is put to suit up to the Oakland Raiders on Monday night to finish weekly when he was hung over by a threat of suspension.
The wide receiver has been through a tumultuous preseason that included a bizarre foot harm caused by a device and a threat to give up the NFL because of a row over a helmet he wanted to wear which the league deemed dangerous.
Those troubles reached a head with reports promising Brown and Raiders .
The row blew up following Mayock issued Brown with a letter confirming substantial fines for lost practice sessions while resolving his helmet problems – Brown subsequently posted the letter Instagram with the words”if your team would like to hate” printed over it.
During the incident, Brown was fortunate to have said to Mayock”I’ll hit you in the face” and then punted a nearby ball away, adding”nice me for this”.
Reports emerged that the Raiders would suspend Brown, at least to their Week 1 date together with the Denver Broncos.
However, amid further claims that Brown had issued an”mental apology” for his part in the Mayock row, Raiders head coach Jon Gruden confirmed on Friday the 31-year-old will be available for Oakland’s season opener.
Gruden said:”I don’t actually have a prepared statement but I’ll only say Antonio is back today. We are ready to move on and very excited about that.
“He has had a lot of time to consider things and we’re pleased to get him back. I understand Raider Nation is excited about that also.”
When asked if he would play on Monday night,” Gruden included:”That’s the plan, that’s the plan, yes.”
