Patriots WR Antonio Brown will not be placed on the commissioner’s exempt list, per Dan Patrick. This is an indication that he will make his Patriots debut on Sunday against the Miami Dolphins.

Brown’s former trainer, Britney Taylor, has accused him of sexual assault in a civl lawsuit. It looks like the league will let the situation play out before pursuing any punishment. Although, as previously reported, Taylor is scheduled to meet with the NFL next week.

Brown was released by the Oakland Raiders shortly before Week 1 but was immediately grabbed up by the New England Patriots on a one-year deal worth $15 million. A second year $20 million option was added to his contract. The transactions were done before accusations became public.
