The Jets re-signed Brown on Sunday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Brown only spent a day apart from New York before the team opted to re-sign him. He'll offer New York depth at tight end behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.
Brown (undisclosed) was activated off the non-football injury list Saturday, Ethan B. Greenberg of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: Brown has been on the NFI list since July 30. He is a distant third in the tight end pecking order for the Jets behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin, but will look to make an impression at camp regardless. His 2019 season ended in December following ankle surgery, but it now appears his health is finally back up to par.
The Jets placed Brown (undisclosed) on the non-football injury list Thursday, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Brown is a distant third in the tight end pecking order for the Jets behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin. That said, Griffin is still in recovery mode from December ankle surgery, which could have allowed Brown to have increased reps in the coming weeks. Instead, Brown is dealing with an unknown injury of his own, leaving his status in limbo for the time being.
Brown signed a one-year contract extension with the Jets on Thursday.
Analysis: Brown appeared in all 16 regular-season games with the Jets in 2019, hauling in seven catches for 72 yards and one touchdown. He also played a key role on special teams. The veteran tight end stands to handle a similar role on the tight end depth chart for 2020.
Brown caught three of four targets for 32 yards in Sunday's 13-6 win over Buffalo.
Analysis: Brown came in with just four catches all season but closed out the campaign in style with his first multi-catch effort. He was forced into a larger role with injuries ravaging the tight end depth chart above him, but Brown will go back to a depth role next season, be it with the Jets or elsewhere.
Brown failed to catch his lone target in Sunday's 16-10 win over the Steelers.
Analysis: With their top two tight ends both injured, the Jets have largely ignored the position in the passing game recently. Brown and rookie Tevon Wesco combined for one catch, and the team has more incentive to find out what it has in Wesco than the 27-year-old Brown.
Brown caught one of two targets for four yards during Thursday's 42-21 loss to the Ravens.
Analysis: Brown played 29 snaps (49 percent) on offense with Ryan Griffin (ankle) out for the season. The James Madison product stands to continue splitting tight end reps with Trevon Wesco going forward, but due to his lack of upside as a pass catcher he doesn't warrant fantasy consideration in most formats.
Brown is expected to start at tight end against the Ravens on Thursday with Ryan Griffin (ankle) ruled out, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Brown played 87 percent of snaps on offense during Week 14's win over the Dolphins, during which Griffin left the field early in the first quarter. The James Madison product doesn't offer much upside as a pass catcher, but he could nonetheless warrant fantasy consideration in leagues that start multiple tight ends due to his expected opportunity.
Brown caught one of two targets for seven yards in Sunday's 22-21 win over Miami.
Analysis: Brown and rookie Trevon Wesco were the only healthy tight ends remaining after Ryan Griffin exited early on due to an ankle injury. Even if Griffin is forced to miss time beyond this game, Brown doesn't have enough receiving ability to warrant fantasy consideration.
Brown caught his lone target for nine yards in Sunday's 22-6 loss to Cincinnati.
Analysis: Brown doubled his season catch total with this effort. It's safe to leave the blocking tight end off your radar.
Brown caught a 20-yard touchdown on his lone target in Sunday's 34-17 win over the Redskins.
Analysis: This was Brown's first catch of the season and second touchdown in his 52nd NFL game. Fantasy owners can continue to ignore the depth tight end.
Brown (ankle) is active for Sunday's game against the Eagles.
Analysis: Brown was considered questionable after working as a limited participant at practice, but he won't end up missing a game due to the ankle issue. The 27-year-old is set to serve as the No. 2 tight end behind Ryan Griffin.
Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Friday's game against the Jets, Rich Cimini of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Brown was limited at practice throughout the week and is looking like a game time decision. Trevon Wescon would be in line to back up Ryan Griffin should he ultimately be unable to go.Chris Herndon (suspension) is set to return in next week against the Cowboys, which will knock Brown one more down the depth chart.
Brown (ankle) was a limited participant in Thursday's practice, Eric Allen of the Jets' official site reports.
Analysis: The nature of Brown's injury remains unknown at this time, but it's a positive sign that he wasn't held out of practice entirely. The veteran tight end does most of his damage as a blocker and special-teams asset.
Brown caught one of two targets for eight yards in Thursday's 22-10 win over Atlanta in Week 2 of preseason.
Analysis: Brown's catch came on a second-half pass thrown by third-stringer Davis Webb, suggesting Brown remains little more than a depth option at the tight end position. Rookie Trevon Wesco had a touchdown called back on a penalty in this one and currently represents Brown's biggest competition for the No. 3 tight end spot behind Chris Herndon and Ryan Griffin.
Brown was back at practice Wednesday after tending to a hamstring injury, Manish Mehta of the New York Daily News reports.
Analysis: Brown sustained the injury during Sunday's practice session, but was able to make a return following a short absence. His return won't make major headlines, but for his individual performance, he will be back working in with the second and third teams.
Brown is not participating at Monday's practice due to a hamstring injury, Brian Costello of the New York Post reports.
Analysis: Brown sustained the injury at Sunday's practice and will miss at least some time due to the issue. It's not clear how long the 27-year-old is expected to be sidelined.
Brown signed a contract with the Jets on Monday, Patrick Finley of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.
Analysis: Brown has seen the majority of his offensive snaps as a blocker since entering the league in 2015, and was not targeted through 14 games with the Bears last season. If the 26-year-old is able to carve out a spot on the 53-man roster, he'll likely play a similar role with the Jets.
Brown was not targeted in 14 games with the Bears this season.
Analysis: Brown's career-high for single season yardage is only 16 receiving yards, so his minimal output isn't overly surprising. The 26-year-old played sparingly on offense as he was mostly utilized on special teams. Brown is set to become a free agent and is likely to have a similar role should he sign elsewhere.
Brown (shoulder) was a full participant at practice Thursday, Kevin Fishbain of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Brown was limited in practice last week and was inactive for the season opener in Green Bay, but appears recovered from the shoulder injury he suffered at the end of August. The 26-year-old is listed as the No. 4 tight end on the Bears depth chart, and is unlikely to make an offensive impact with Trey Burton, Dion Sims and Ben Braunecker currently healthy.
