Mack Brown News

Joins Raiders

Brown signed a contract with the Raiders on Saturday, Jerry McDonald of the East Bay Times reports.

Analysis: This appears to be a depth move, as Josh Jacobs, Jalen Richard and Doug Martin all seem to have a firm hold on the top three spots on the depth chart. Brown last played with the Redskins in 2017, but was a part of the team's practice squad last season until mid-November.

Let go Tuesday

The Redskins released Brown from their practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Brown joined Washington's practice squad on Oct. 2 with the hopes of eventually making the 53-man roster. That ultimately never came to fruition, and Mack will now look to continue his NFL career elsewhere.

Inks deal to Washington practice squad

Brown was signed to the Redskins' practice squad Tuesday.

Analysis: Brown is no stranger to the Redskins' practice squad having been a key contributor to the unit back in 2016. Many close to the team have pushed for Brown's activation to the 53-man roster, but it seems like he'll need some things out of his control to go right in order for that to come to fruition. As it currently stands, Brown figures to be the No. 5 running back option in Washington until further notice.

Reaches injury settlement

Brown (undisclosed) was waived by the Vikings on Friday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Brown was waived/injured with an undisclosed injury by the Vikings last week and reverted to injured reserve after clear waivers. The 26-year-old reached an injury settlement with the team and is now free to sign elsewhere.

Reverts to IR

Brown (undisclosed) cleared waivers and reverted to injured reserve, according to the league's official transaction log.

Analysis: Brown's situation remains clouded, but the running back is nonetheless stuck on IR through the end of the league year unless he agrees to an injury settlement.

Drops to waivers

The Vikings waived/injured Brown (undisclosed) on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of reports.

Analysis: Brown played four games between the Vikings and the Redskins last season, rushing eight times for 29 yards. He couldn't stay healthy this preseason, however, as he only played one game and rushed 11 times for 34 yards. If he clears waivers, he'll revert to injured reserve.

Returns to practice Sunday

Brown (undisclosed) participated in Sunday's practice, Chad Graff of The Athletic Minnesota reports.

Analysis: Brown has been sidelined for nearly two weeks with an undisclosed injury that forced him to miss the last two preseason games. With being back at practice, he should be set to return for the team's final outing before the start of the regular season, but it may be too late for the tailback to make the final roster.

Sitting out Week 3 of preseason

Brown (undisclosed) remains sidelined for Friday's preseason game against the Seahawks.

Analysis: Brown's undisclosed issue has sidelined him for well over a week, so it's not a huge surprise that the tailback will miss the third preseason game. He may be on the outside looking in for a 53-man roster spot and missed time during the preseason doesn't help his cause.

Misses Week 2 of preseason

Brown (undisclosed) did not play in Saturday's preseason loss to the Jaguars, Matthew Coller of reports.

Analysis: Brown has been dealing with an undisclosed injury for about a week now, while Roc Thomas and Mike Boone have emerged in their battle for the No. 3 spot at running back behind Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray. Brown is on the outside looking in with two preseason games remaining, though his status for Friday's tilt against the Seahawks is in question.

Not participating in Monday's practice

Brown did not participate in Monday's practice due to an undisclosed reason, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Analysis: Brown didn't appear to have sustained an injury during Saturday's preseason opener against the Broncos when he rushed for 34 yards on 11 carries, but he's sidelined Monday due to an undisclosed issue. Any injury would hinder his chances of securing the No. 3 spot at running back behind Dalvin Cook (knee) and Latavius Murray, while fellow reserve Roc Thomas emerged with 131 total yards and two scores Saturday.

Has 34 yards rushing in preseason opener

Brown had 11 carries for 34 yards in Saturday's preseason win at Denver.

Analysis: Brown averaged just 3.1 yards per carry while Roc Thomas had 131 total yards and two touchdowns. It's still early in the competition for the third running back job, but Thomas may have moved ahead of Brown and Mike Boone for the job.
