ALAMEDA — When the Raiders went through warmups and drills Sunday before practice, wide receiver Antonio Brown was present, accounted for and wearing a helmet.

Brown has been working with the NFL and going through proper channels in an effort to wear a preferred brand of helmet. The NFL Network is reporting that Brown has lost a second grievance procedure.

The Raiders believe both of Brown’s training camp issues — feet with frostbite like symptoms and the helmet issue — are in the rear-view mirror. Coach Jon Gruden believes Brown is on track to start Week 1 against the Denver Broncos on Monday night, Sept. 9.

Brown, according to, has narrowed his options on a helmet from multiple companies and is expected to receive an endorsement deal when he selects one to use in the regular season.
