Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown actually practiced with the team on Tuesday. Brown's helmet was more than 10 years old and therefore was not certified by the national governing body and not approved for use by the NFL.
Gruden doesn't get to play good cop very often, but he has with Brown.
The hearing in front of an arbitrator will likely take place Friday, according to Rapoport.
"I'm confident that he's going to be a heck of player for us and be ready to roll", coach Jon Gruden proclaimed. There's nothing wrong in supporting your players on things they believe in.
Brown left the team twice in training camp in Napa, California - the first time for two weeks to ostensibly seek treatment for his frostbitten feet; the second time on Sunday, skipping out on practice in anger over the league denying his helmet.

Gruden responds in the most Football Guy way: "I know you've got a lot of people in your ear, because you're like a corporation that's kind of gone global", he says.
We also finally got a good underdog to root for in this episode (sorry Nathan Peterman, I'm just not that interested in your quest to become Oakland's backup). "He's running hard and running good routes". I'm talking about that whole helmet fiasco, of course, which has been an embarrassing storyline for someone who's supposed to be one of the best players in the game.
After each of the five episodes this season, Sporting News will recap the best, worst and most weird of what the team has to offer from its camp in Napa, Calif., as it prepares for its final season in Oakland. Too much noise right now. The episode ends with general manager Mike Mayock's disgruntled statement on Brown, where he said the receiver needs to be all in or all out.
"I feel like I was enemy of the f-- state. F--". I'm on every channel! And that can't happen with Brown checking into practice only when he feels the inspiration. "My f--' head, the feet people after me".
