Antonio Brown is expected to play for the Raiders on Monday night after all.

Head coach Jon Gruden delivered the news in a brief statement at the start of practice Friday.

“Antonio’s back today,” Gruden said. “We’re really excited about that, ready to move on. He’s had a lot of, obviously, time to think about things. We’re happy to have him back. And I know Raider Nation is excited about that, too.”

Looks like AB has now made his own statement regarding his future with the Raiders.  

Clearly he was forced to say something.
