TAMPA BAY, FL. (THECOUNT) — Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown has issued a detailed statement through his attorney following a wild exit during the 3rd quarter of Sunday’s game against the New York Jets.
In the statement, Brown refutes certain events as told by Bucs head coach Bruce Arians since Sunday’s game, including Arians’ assertion that his conversation with Brown on the sideline was not related to his ankle injury.
AB claims the injury is severe enough to require surgery, adding it prevented him from being able to finish Sunday’s game.
