The NFL have suspended Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Antonio Brown after he faked his coronavirus vaccination status.
According to TMZ, the NFL have suspended Brown for three games after he submitted a fake COVID-19 vaccine card to league officials.
The announcement comes after Brown’s chef, Steven Ruiz, claimed last month that the Buccaneers star had sought and obtained a fake vaccine card all the way back in July.
In a statement, Brown’s attorney, Sean Burstyn, has said that the 33-year-old footballer player was in fact vaccinated and that Brown will not challenge the NFL’s outcome.
“Mr. Brown is vaccinated and continues to support the vaccine for any person for whom it is appropriate,” he said.
“The NFL made its determination and, instead of going through the drawn out and distracting process of challenging the outcome, Mr. Brown wrapped this up promptly and he will make this most of this time by treating his ankle injury,” he added.
