Rosenhaus approaches Gruden after practice to discuss Brown's helmet progress, at this point still thinking they would be able to take advantage of a loophole that would allow Brown to wear a helmet similar to one he wore in the past, as long it was manufactured less than 10 years ago.

"He's all-in and ready to go", Gruden said.

Brown donned a Schutt Vengeance Z10 LTD, which is among the NFL's 34 approved helmets, a source told Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. Although Brown recently filed a new grievance against the National Football League, it seems as if he's at least willing to practice with a new helmet on, for the time being.

Although it seemed as if Brown still wouldn't be practicing with the team - he was seen walking off the field when players put their helmets on - it looks like Brown did end up joining in. "That's my understanding", Gruden said during a press conference, according to NBC Sports.

And yes, for those of you wondering, that work also included No. 84 wearing a helmet. And there's nothing wrong with supporting your players, on things that they believe in.

"You know, too much noise right now".

Raiders general manager Mike Mayock gave Antonio Brown an ultimatum, and it appears for now the star wide receiver is playing ball. "More work, less noise". I'm on every channel!

"The feet feeling a lot better", Brown tells a "Hard Knocks" producer earlier in the week. I've been going, taking care of the feet.

Today, we look over three positions groups that have the most depth on the Raiders roster and discuss which players are safe, and which ones are not.
