Antonio Brown just had to wait until the “Hard Knocks” cameras turned off.

The star Raiders receiver is getting suspended by the team, according to ESPN, after a run-in Wednesday with GM Mike Mayock.

According to the report, the altercation between the two stemmed from Brown’s Instagram post earlier that day, in which he brought to light a letter from Mayock that showed the Raiders had fined him nearly $54,000 through camp. The Athletic reported that Brown had to be held back by some teammates during the tiff.

Among the fines listed was for being absent from training camp on Aug. 18, the day Mayock lashed out at Brown and issued an “all-in or all-out” ultimatum to the perplexing former Steeler.

“WHEN YOUR OWN TEAM WANT TO HATE BUT THERE’S NO STOPPING ME NOW DEVIL IS A LIE,” Brown wrote on Instagram. “EVERYONE GOT TO PAY THIS YEAR SO WE CLEAR.”

From the frostbitten feet to the helmet saga to a fight with team brass that has repercussions, whether Brown actually plays for the Raiders is beginning to look like a real question.
