New England Patriots wide receiver Antonio Brown could be seen sporting a No. 1 jersey in his first practice with his new team on Wednesday, despite the grotesque allegations surrounding the 31-year-old.

It's not surprising to see Brown at practice on Wednesday since there have been no official actions taken by the Patriots or the NFL. Until then, Brown is allowed to practice and play with the team, so if no decision is made by Sunday, AB could be on the field for the Pats.

Brown was accused of sexual assault and rape by his former college peer and trainer Britney Taylor. He and his legal team have denied the allegations made by Taylor and have filed a countersuit.

He vehemently denied the allegations, claiming Taylor is after a "money grab" ever since Brown signed his lucrative contract with the Oakland Raiders. The contract has since been voided due to Brown's childish behavior, leading to his release from Oakland.

While the NFL is reportedly considering launching its own investigation, which could thus land Brown on the commissioner's exempt list, there's still a chance he'll be involved in Sunday's game plan, if no action is taken prior to the 1:00 p.m. ET kickoff.

Until more information is revealed, it seems Patriots are planning to utilize Brown in Week 2.
