Antonio Brown is set to make his Oakland Raiders debut on Monday night after all.After reports emerged Thursday that the team planned to suspend the wide receiver following a heated exchange with general manager Mike Mayock, coach Jon Gruden said Friday that Brown will be allowed to play in the season opener against the Denver Broncos.”Antonio’s back today, we’re really excited about that,” Gruden told reporters. “Ready to move on. He’s had a lot of obviously time to think about things. We’re happy to have him back, and I know Raider Nation is excited about that, too.”Asked if Brown would play Monday night, Gruden said, “That’s the plan.”Brown issued a short statement on Friday but did not take questions.”I’m excited to be out here today,” Brown said. “I want to apologize to my teammates, the organization. Enough talk, man … ready for all the fans.”HOT SEAT RANKINGS:Jay Gruden, Jason Garrett already on notice?On Wednesday, Brown shared on Instagram a screen capture of a fine letter he had received from the team for missing an August walkthrough and training camp practice. Later that day, according to multiple reports, Brown initiated a confrontation at practice with Mayock that included a series of expletives. NFL Network reported that Brown told Mayock he would hit him in the face and then punted a ball, telling the general manager to fine him for doing so.If the Raiders had suspended Brown for conduct detrimental to the team, the move could have voided more $30 million in guaranteed money in Brown’s contract.Gruden’s announcement is the latest twist in what has been a tumultuous offseason for both Brown and the franchise. The four-time all-pro selection arrived to much fanfare, as he was expected to be a key target for quarterback Derek Carr in what is expected to be the franchise’s final season in Oakland. But Brown was sidelined at the start of training camp by frostbite on his feet, an ailment he sustained during cryotherapy. He later skipped several mandatory team activities while unsuccessfully petitioning the NFL to allow him to continue wearing his old helmet model, which was no longer eligible for certification by the National Operating Committee on Standards for Athletic Equipment.Follow Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz on Twitter @MikeMSchwartz.
