FOXBOROUGH — Antonio Brown continues to be the biggest topic surrounding the Patriots.

Listen to your team news NOW.

Assistant coaches were made available as part of their monthly requirement on Friday morning, which meant they were asked about Brown — regardless if they coach him or not.

One of those coaches was long-time offensive line coach Dante Scarnecchia.

“I don’t care,” he said when first asked about him.

A follow-up was asked about how Brown has performed on the field, as well as his off-field behavior.

“I don’t care. Let’s move on,” he said. “I coach the offensive line, that’s all I do.”

A few minutes later, Bill Belichick addressed the media and walked off the podium after three minutes, although most of that was his opening statement on the Jets. The coach acknowledged for the first time the team is looking into things with Brown.

When asked if he expects to have him on Sunday, Belichick responded, “He’s on our roster.”

Brown was present on the practice field Friday afternoon.
