Antonio Brown, new star wide receiver for the Oakland Raiders, released pictures of his gruesome foot blisters that he received this summer that costed him to miss a few practices early in the preseason training camp. The pictures show that his absence is well-deserved and a good reason why he is taking days off during the preseason.

Brown was picked up by head coach Jon Gruden after his offseason debacle with the Pittsburgh Steelers owners, the Rooney family. Gruden said that he was disappointed that his new top receiver is missing multiple practices in a crucial time period to get primed for the upcoming season.

“I think we’re all disappointed,” Gruden said, according to ESPN. “We think he’s disappointed. We’d like to get the party started. We’d like to get him out here. He’s a big part of the team. But for the time being we’re going to continue to work hard and we’re seeing the development of some other receivers we’re excited about.”

Brown missed a majority of the team practices last week.

Along with missing practice, the new feature on HBO’s Hardknocks will feature the Raiders, with the first episode coming out on Tuesday night. A recent trailer clip of the highly-awaited show reveals Brown talking to his kids about his new move to Oakland, compared to his time at Pittsburgh.

One of his kids asks, “where’s [Ben] Roethlisberger?”

Brown avoids the talk surrounding his rumored effort to move from the Steelers in order to receive more money, and instead says, “he play with the Steelers. Our quarterback Derek [Carr] now,” Brown said to his kids, according to Los Angeles Times. “We don’t play with Roethlisberger no more. We play with the Raiders.”

Brown’s kids then ask him why he isn’t out there practicing with the rest of the team. He responds with, “daddy’s feet still sore,” he said, according to the New York Post.
