Antonio Brown's future with the Raiders is suddenly in doubt, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Brown has reportedly told the team that he won't play football again if he's not allowed to wear his old helmet. Schefter breaks it all down:

Listen to your team news NOW.

According to Schefter, Brown had a two-hour conference call with league officials regarding the situation, which could be resolved early next week.

This is the latest in  a series of Brown-centric stories out of Oakland's training camp. First, after arriving in a hot-air balloon, he was put on the non-football injury list on the first day of camp after suffering frostbitten feet from a cryotherapy chamber (yes, you read that correctly).

Earlier on Friday morning, it was reported that he had gone "radio silent" and that Oakland had no idea where he is or the status of his injury.
