Antonio Brown might get an answer to the injury that has limited him at the start of the Raiders training camp.
The seven-time Pro Bowl wide receiver was scheduled to see a foot specialist Saturday, according to a report from The Athletic.

Brown was placed on the non-football injury list after arriving to camp on July 26. However, at that time, the issue was described as “very minor,” according to an ESPN report.
Since then, coach Jon Gruden has not been pleased with his new receiver.
“I think we’re all disappointed,” Gruden said after practice Friday. “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.”
Brown was acquired in a trade with the Steelers this offseason and penned a three-year, $50.12 million contract with Oakland, which has high expectations for him.
The 31-year-old receiver led the NFL in touchdown receptions last season with 15 and finished with more than 1,200 yards receiving for the sixth consecutive season.
