Adam Schefter believes Antonio Brown will practice this week with Patriots

Taylor and her legal representatives filed a civil lawsuit in the Southern District of Florida Tuesday alleging Brown sexually assaulted her on three occasions.

Yet, in the first images from Brown's time at Patriots practice, it was clear that he wasn't wearing the Xenith Shadow or even the helmet he wore in preseason warmups with Oakland. Whether he plays Sunday depends on several factors, including whether the team thinks he's ready after only a few practices. During his brief news conference, Belichick repeatedly said, "We're working on Miami".

Added team captain Matthew Slater: "I certainly don't wanna minimize the seriousness of a situation like this".

If that were to happen, the New England Patriots wide receiver would be ineligible to play for every week that he's on the list, although he would still receive a paycheck. ESPN's Adam Schefter appeared on WEEI's "The Greg Hill Show" on Wednesday and believes that Brown will be at there. We will be reaching out to the pertinent police agencies to determine if they had any prior contacts or investigations.

Brown was a member of the Steelers when the alleged incidents took place.

Whether or not Antonio Brown ends up playing for the Patriots this week against the Miami Dolphins is still very much up in the air. Again, it's a fluid situation, but I'd guess he'd be out there. They are what they are. "I'm sure there are questions, but I'm not going to be entering a discussion about that today", he said.

Brown, 31, has not been charged with any crime and denies the accusations. Darren Heitner, a lawyer representing Brown, said his client plans to countersue.

Brown would, however, be eligible to continue being paid on the one-year deal he signed Monday with the Patriots that could pay him $15 million this season. However, the National Football League world was rocked on Tuesday night when the star receiver was accused of sexual assault by a former trainer and college classmate of his. Under no circumstances does this organization condone sexual violence or assault.

Zappala Jr. said Wednesday his office will investigate allegations made against Antonio Brown in a federal lawsuit.

Following Brown's signing, Tom Brady had been excited about the prospect of teaming up with one of the league's most dynamic threats, via ESPN's Mike Reiss.
