It’s now a viral NFL video as Antonio Brown was seen yelling on the sidelines during the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New York Jets game. Brown then stripped off his jersey and ran through the end zone shirtless to the locker room in the middle of the game.
This seemed like just another wild and crazy moment from Antonio Brown as he was thought to be just storming off of the field after not being involved enough in the game plan, or he was mad they were losing to the Jets at the time, or he had an argument on the sideline that caused him to storm off in spectacular fashion. No one really knew, but those were seen as the three most common guesses as to what had happened.
No one really saw what Antonio Brown has come out and said coming.
Brown said on Wednesday, three days after the game, that he was basically forced to play the game and to take a dangerous pain shot for him to play through an ankle injury. When he told coaches that he couldn’t play anymore due to the injury he was told by head coach Bruce Arians, “you’re done!” This is what caused Brown to take his jersey off and run off of the field mid-game.
Now no one knows if there is any truth to this, but we have to take Antonio Brown at his word until multiple other reports come out potentially conflicting this statement.
