Schefter said on social media that Brown had filed a helmet grievance against the NFL because the new helmet design "interferes with his vision."

This follows reports that Brown cannot practice due to complications from a cryogenic treatment done on his feet.

According to NFL reporter Michael Silver, Brown even reportedly painted his old helmet to try to get it on the field.
