Report: Raiders WR Brown to visit foot specialist

Oakland Raiders wide receiver Antonio Brown plans to visit a foot specialist, The Athletic reported Saturday.

Brown was briefly on the non-football injury list when training camp opened but was cleared to practice on July 28. He has yet to be a full participant, however. The specific nature of the injury has not been revealed.

“I think we’re all disappointed,” coach Jon Gruden said about Brown’s absence Friday, according to The Athletic. “We want to get the party started.”

The Raiders acquired the seven-time Pro Bowl selection from the Pittsburgh Steelers in a trade in March and later signed him to a three-year, $50.125 million contract.

Brown, 31, caught at least 100 passes and exceeded 1,200 receiving yards in each of the past six seasons with the Steelers.

He appeared in 130 games with Pittsburgh from 2010-18, catching 837 passes for 11,207 yards and 74 touchdowns.
