Patriots coach Bill Belichick acknowledged the team was looking into “some things” regarding Antonio Brown, but refused to take any questions related to the allegations or actions of the receiver during his media session Friday ahead of Sunday’s game against the Jets.

“We take all the situations with our team very seriously and there are some things that we’re looking into,” Belichick said. “But I won’t have any comment on any of the off-the-field situations.”

Brown has been embroiled in controversy since signing with the Patriots Sept. 7. On Thursday night, Brown was accused of intimidating a woman who alleged that he sexually harassed her. Previously, he was accused of rape by his former trainer, Britney Taylor, in a civil suit filed in Florida Sept. 10.


Belichick ended the press conference after three minutes, saying he would answer “football questions” but that he was “done with the rest of it” after being asked about Brown’s status with the team.

Belichick said Brown was still on the roster.
