Marquise Brown: Looking healthy

Brown (foot) has been running routes and catching passes in workouts with quarterback Lamar Jackson.

Analysis: It's a strong indication that Brown emerged without any complications from winter surgery to remove a screw in his left foot. He initially had surgery to repair a Lisfranc injury last January, missing spring practices and the beginning of training camp. Jackson and coach John Harbaugh both mentioned that Brown was never at full strength during his rookie campaign, with the foot injury and an ankle sprain often limiting his participation in practice. The young wideout missed two games and was listed as questionable for seven others, but he scored seven touchdowns in 14 regular-season appearances and then added 126 yards in Baltimore's lone playoff game. Brown appears locked in as the team's No. 1 wideout for 2020.

Marquise Brown: Gets follow-up foot surgery

Brown had offseason surgery to remove a screw from his foot, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

Analysis: The screw was placed in Brown's foot when he had Lisfranc surgery last January. The follow-up procedure is less serious, as it could limit his involvement in the offseason program but should allow for full participation in training camp. The 2019 first-round pick finished his rookie campaign on a high note with seven catches for 126 yards in a playoff loss to Tennessee.

Marquise Brown: Never reached full strength

Coach John Harbaugh and quarterback Lamar Jackson both said Brown wasn't at full strength during his rookie season, ESPN.com's Jamison Hensley reports.

Analysis: Brown had Lisfranc surgery last January and didn't begin practicing until the very end of July. His snap share trended up each week throughout September, but he then sprained his ankle on the other leg Week 5 at Pittsburgh. When all was said and done, Brown missed two games and played through a 'questionable' tag in seven others, reaching 75 percent snap share on just three occasions. One of those instances was the playoff loss to Tennessee, in which Brown caught seven of 11 targets for 126 yards. The Ravens figure to make his usage more consistent in 2020, though it's fair to wonder if Brown's slight frame might make durability a career-long concern.

Marquise Brown: Stellar effort in upset loss

Brown brought in seven of 11 targets for 126 yards in the Ravens' 28-12 divisional-round loss to the Titans on Saturday.

Analysis: The rookie had a mostly disappointing finish to the regular season, as he'd managed no more than 45 receiving yards in any of his last five games while finding the end zone only once during that span. Brown helped make up for that multi-game lull with a spectacular showing Saturday, albeit in defeat. His reception, receiving yardage and target totals all paced the Ravens for the night, and he had one of the plays of the night with an impressive one-handed grab in Titans territory in the first half. Brown finished his first pro season with a solid 46-584-7 line over 14 contests, and he'll look to put together more consistent production as the likely top receiving option in the team's air attack in 2020.

Marquise Brown: Active, but not expected to play

Brown (illness) is active for Sunday's game against the Steelers but isn't expected to play in the contest, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: The Ravens have already clinched the AFC's No. 1 seed and are expected to lean heavily on a lineup of backup players in a meaningless regular-season finale, so the team's top wideout won't be in store for any work. Brown likely would have been inactive for the contest if the Ravens hadn't already dedicated all seven of those spots to resting or injured players.

Marquise Brown: Not expected to play Sunday

Brown (illness), who is listed as questionable on the official injury report for Sunday's game against the Steelers, is not expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: With the Ravens having already secured the AFC's top seed, coach John Harbaugh has acknowledged he would hold out a handful of key players for rest purposes. As a result, this report saying Brown will sit out is no surprise.

Marquise Brown: Availability uncertain for Week 17

Brown didn't participate in Friday's practice due to an illness and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Steelers.

Analysis: A late-week addition to the injury report, Brown suddenly finds himself at risk of sitting out the regular-season finale after falling ill. Even if Brown is back to 100 percent health ahead of Sunday's 4:25 p.m. ET kickoff, he could be in store for a smaller role than usual, if he even sees the field at all. With the Ravens having already secured the AFC's top seed, coach John Harbaugh has acknowledged he would hold out four key players for rest purposes, and the same could end up applying to both Brown and tight end Mark Andrews (ankle), who is also listed as questionable.

Marquise Brown: Quiet in Week 16

Brown caught one of two targets for six yards against the Browns.

Analysis: The rookie's up-and-down season was on the downswing Sunday as he saw minimal volume and was not impactful with it. Sunday's outing comes just one week after a strong four-catch, 45-yard performance against the Jets that also included a touchdown. Brown wasn't among the list of players John Harbaugh said would be resting for the season finale against the Steelers. That said, Brown will be catching passes from Robert Griffin and possibly even Trace McSorley as Lamar Jackson will be held out.

Marquise Brown: Makes touchdown grab in win

Brown secured all four of his targets for 45 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' 42-21 win over the Jets on Thursday.

Analysis: Brown tied Mark Andrews for the team high in receptions and notched his first touchdown catch since Week 12 when he notched a 24-yard scoring grab midway through the third quarter. The rookie hasn't been over the 100-yard mark since Week 1, but his game-breaking speed gives him plenty of upside any time he's on the field. Brown will look to boost his numbers in a Week 16 divisional matchup against the Browns.

Marquise Brown: Finishes with negative yardage

Brown caught all three of his targets while losing two yards during Sunday's 24-17 win over the Bills.

Analysis: Facing a difficult matchup, Brown managed a long gain of just five yards. Unfortunately, he lost yardage on his other two grabs and finished with a rather unique stat line. In fact, Brown finished with just one yard a week ago and hardly looks like the explosive downfield threat he was early in the season. He will look to get back on track Thursday against the Jets.

Marquise Brown: Ready to go Sunday

Brown (ankle) is officially active for Sunday's game at Buffalo, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: Brown received the questionable tag after being added to the injury report with the ankle issue Thursday, but his status for Week 14 never truly appeared to be in doubt. The 22-year-old was limited to one catch for one yard last week against the 49ers, but the Bills' secondary doesn't represent an easy matchup for a rebound performance.

Marquise Brown: Questionable, but likely to play

Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Bills but is expected to play, Jonas Shaffer of The Baltimore Sun reports.

Analysis: The Ravens added Brown to their injury report Thursday after he was a limited participant in their practice session that day, though he concluded the week with a full showing Friday. That practice was described as a walk-through, per Daniel Oyefusi of The Baltimore Sun, which likely explains why Brown will carry a designation into the weekend. In any case, Brown is expected to be available to play his usual allotment of snaps Sunday, though fantasy managers will still want to confirm his availability when the Ravens release their inactive list 90 minutes prior to the 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

December 6, 2019 11:19 AM EST

Marquise Brown: Added to injury report

Brown (ankle) was limited at practice Thursday.

Analysis: Brown was a Thursday addition to the Ravens' Week 14 injury report, so we'll we'll have to see if he suffered any setbacks in practice or was simply having his reps managed. As recently as Week 11, Brown was listed as dealing with an ankle injury, though it's not clear if his current issue is related to that.

December 5, 2019 12:32 PM EST

Marquise Brown: Non-factor in win

Brown caught one of two targets for one yard in Sunday's 20-17 win over San Francisco.

Analysis: Brown relies on big chunk plays, and there weren't many of those to be found in this battle of disciplined defenses. Quarterback Lamar Jackson only threw for 105 yards in this one, so there should be better days ahead for the rookie wide receiver, who was coming off his second multi-score game of the season. Brown will have to contend with a stout Buffalo secondary on the road in Week 14.

Marquise Brown: Catches two touchdowns

Brown caught five of seven targets for 42 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's 45-6 win over the Rams.

Analysis: Brown and quarterback Lamar Jackson got clicking early, as they teamed up for touchdowns on back-to-back drives to start the game. The rookie first scored from a six-yard crossing route, before later grabbing an 18-yard TD down the seam. Although he sprinkled in a few more catches afterward, Brown actually dropped a third touchdown during the second half. That miscue should offer motivation ahead of a monstrous matchup against the 49ers in Week 13, but Brown still made a strong impact Monday.

November 25, 2019 9:01 PM EST

Marquise Brown: Quiet in Week 11 win

Brown brought in two of four targets for 23 yards in the Ravens' 41-7 win over the Texans on Sunday.

Analysis: Brown once again came into the contest nursing his ankle injury, and he ultimately played just a minimal role in the big win. The speedster may be having trouble gaining separation due to being less than 100 percent, and he's seen no more than five targets in four consecutive contests. Brown will look to heal up with an extra day this week before a Week 12 Monday night matchup against the Rams.

November 17, 2019 3:22 PM EST

Marquise Brown: Suits up Sunday

Brown (ankle) is listed as active for Sunday's game against the Texans.

Analysis: Brown also headed in Week 10 action listed as questionable, but was able to suit up against the Bengals, catching all four of his targets for 80 yards and a TD on his 18 snaps on offense. Assuming no in-game setbacks Sunday, the speedy rookie will look to build off his most recent stat line, taking aim at a Houston defense that has allowed an average of 277.3 yards in the air (only the Raiders, Cardinals and Buccaneers are surrendering more) in addition to 18 TD passes through nine games.

November 17, 2019 8:36 AM EST

Marquise Brown: Expected to play Sunday

Brown (ankle) who is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans, is expected to play, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Analysis: Brown was held out of Thursday's practice, but was able to return Friday. Despite this report, fantasy owners will still want to confirm this status when inactives are released 90 minutes before Sunday's 1 p.m. ET kickoff.

November 16, 2019 11:45 PM EST

Marquise Brown: Listed as questionable after return to practice

Brown (ankle) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Texans after returning to a limited practice Friday.

Analysis: Brown was held out of Thursday's practice, but his Week 11 outlook brightened when he was able to return to the field Friday. Those hoping to use the No. 25 overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft in fantasy lineups this weekend will learn of his status before the first wave of kickoffs Sunday, with Baltimore hosting Houston at 1:00 ET.

November 15, 2019 1:46 PM EST

Marquise Brown: Back at practice

Brown (ankle) too part in Friday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.

Analysis: It won't be clear until after practice how much work Brown got in, but his participation alone is a positive on the heels of a missed practice Thursday. Brown's status for Week 11 will be revealed when the Ravens release their final injury report of the week.
