Antonio Brown has been dealing with an ankle injury for a very long time. Despite being in a lot of pain, he gives his heart and soul in every play. Brown claims that no one can blame him for not trying his best on the field. Antonio gives it his all. 

 

The commitment of the wide receiver to his game has got him a lot of pressure from above. Brown claims that Arians forced him to suit up despite the injury. The former Bucs’ player still tried to play without any complaints. The staff gave him some unsafe painkillers. At the time, Antonio did not know that these were ruled harmful by the NFLPA. He gave his all to the team until he could not anymore.

With all the responsibilities, Brown couldn’t perform safely. The pain was very extreme for him. During the New York Jets game, the wide receiver took a seat on the sidelines. The HC walked towards him and started shouting. He yelled“What is wrong with you!?” Antonio replied, “It’s my ankle.” Brown claims that Bruce Arians did not get him any medical assistance. He instead shouted, “YOU’RE DONE!” and ran his finger across his throat.
