Brown (foot) still isn't running full speed, but coach John Harbaugh is hopeful the rookie wide receiver will be available at the start of training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: Brown is rehabbing from Jan. 8 surgery on a Lisfranc injury, with his participation thus far limited to select individual drills that don't involve running. He should have clearance to practice at some point during training camp, even if it doesn't quite happen at the beginning. Brown shouldn't need much time to earn a significant role, as the competition for wideout snaps otherwise consists of Willie Snead, Chris Moore, Seth Roberts, Michael Floyd, Jordan Lasley and fellow rookie Miles Boykin (hamstring). The two rookies easily are the best athletes of the bunch.
Brown (foot) is not practicing Wednesday, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Brown has been able to catch passes from a Jugs machine in recent practices, but it seems that might be the extent of his participation in OTAs this spring. While the Ravens will likely hold the first-round pick out for the final day of minicamp Thursday as well, Brown could be back in the mix to some degree for the start of training camp in late July, which has been his targeted return date all along.
Brown (foot) caught football from a Jugs machine during Thursday's practice, Jamison Hensley of ESPN reports.
Analysis: Brown isn't expected to practice in OTAs the rest of this week or in mandatory minicamp next week, but his ability to come out to the field in some capacity is nonetheless a good sign. The primary hope continues to be that Brown will be ready to roll when training camp opens later this summer. If healthy that time, the first-round pick is expected to play a large role in the what the Ravens want to do offensively in 2019.
Brown (foot) continues to recover from his Lisfranc injury but is aiming to be ready for training camp, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The first-round pick out of Oklahoma was limited throughout the pre-draft process while recovering from the Lisfranc injury and did not participate in OTAs. However, Lisfranc surgery generally has a lengthy recovery, so Brown's absence from OTAs was not entirely unexpected. As long as Brown is ready for training camp, he'll be on track to be a Week 1 starter. His status in the lead up to training camp will be worth monitoring, however.
Brown (foot) won't participate in OTAs, Jeff Zrebiec of The Athletic reports.
Analysis: The 25th overall pick from the 2019 NFL Draft is still recovering from Jan. 8 surgery on a Lisfranc injury. He hopes to be ready for the start of training camp, but Brown won't have any level of participation this spring. He'll have a good chance to secure a starting job if he can get healthy by August, as Baltimore's depth chart at wide receiver otherwise contains Willie Snead, Seth Roberts, Michael Floyd, Chris Moore, Jordan Lasley and third-round pick Miles Boykin (hamstring). The team should have open competition for roles this summer.
Brown (foot) did not take the field during rookie minicamp, Jamison Hensley of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: This shouldn't come as much of a surprise, as Brown was only recently cleared to run following Lisfranc surgery in January. The 2019 first-round pick is tentatively scheduled to participate in training camp towards the end of July meaning Brown could be poised to compete for a starting position if he's able to flash his trademark speed during the preseason. That proposition seems a bit aggressive considering the short recovery timetable, but with just Willie Snead, Seth Roberts and fellow rookie Miles Boykin near Brown on the depth chart, the Ravens might be comfortable utilizing their newly minted first-round pick as an explosive decoy until he proves he's fully healthy.
